The movie Laila O Laila has been a project which has been subjected to a lot of media scrutiny and a succession of rumours, in the past few months. The film which has Mohanlal in the lead and is to be directed by Joshiy, had to face the spotlight a few times when it came to the actress playing the lead female role.
Initially it was reported that gorgeous starlet Amala Paul, who just got wed to director AL Vijay, would be the one and the fans were thrilled with this news. But then came the rumours that she had been replaced by Manju Warrior due to Amala’s unavailability and Manju’s rising stardom in Mollywood right now.
But now the rumours have been laid to rest as Amala herself has come forward stating that she is excited that she is getting to share screen space with the Universal Star again.
Mohanlal and Amala had been paired opposite each other in the 2012 blockbuster Run Baby Run, also directed by Joshiy. In fact, it was the success of that one which prompted the director to cast Amala a second time.
Amala also confirms that she plans to continue acting post marriage and that she intends to balance her professional and personal life. This is a slighty different tune from what she sang a few weeks ago in her pre wedding press conference, but hey, the fans are happy and no one’s complaining..
The starlet is currently promoting her upcoming Tamil flick Velai Illa Pattathari (VIP) starring Dhanush, which has gotten a huge reception so far with its trailer.
She is also the star of the upcoming Rajesh Pillai Malayalam film Mili, in which she plays the titular role of the ‘glamour-less’ girl next door.
Laila O Laila, according to sources, is all set to launch its filming in August.
