After several rumours suggesting that Vidya Balan has opted out of Malayalam director Kamal's Aami, it has finally been confirmed that the actress has walked out of the biopic based on feminist poet Kamala Surayya aka Madhavikutty.
Vidya’s spokesperson today confirmed the news and revealed, “Vidya respects the director and the team working on the film. However, the director and she had very different approaches to the film. So, she opted out of the film in the most amicable and professional manner. Any other reasons cited are untrue.”
And while the 38-year-old actress was absolutely excited to play the role, the buzz is that the Kahaani 2 star wasn’t really happy with the final script.
A leading daily quoted a source as saying, “She wanted some changes in the script and the final draft given to her didn’t excite her. In fact, she wanted to spend more time with the director and the writer to get into the skin of her character and that didn’t happen.”
