Aami wouldn't have been a success if Vidya did the role: Kamal

Manju Warrier's Aami, the biopic of writer Madhavikutti, is fetching impressive reports from all around despite the humdrum reviews by a section of critics. The movie has been a title of controversy from the very beginning and it seems there would be an end to it soon. Kamal, the director of Aami, recently made another controversial statement about Vidya Balan who was initially roped in to star in the titular role of Aami. Speaking at a literary festival held in Kerala, Kamal once again repeated that Manju Warrier was a better choice than Vidya Balan to play the part of Madhavikutty in the movie. He had earlier said that if Vidya had played the role, sexuality could have crept into the movie.
