Adam Joan actor Prithviraj has apparently backed out of Aami, the biopic of poet Kamala Das. Initially, it was said that the actor was playing a pivotal role in the film. However, due to his busy schedule, he reportedly doesn’t want to continue with the project. The actor apparently even recommended that Oru Mexican Aparatha star Tovino Thomas do the role. The two of them had earlier worked in the film Ennu Ninte Moideen together.
Prithviraj’s busy schedule doesn’t come as a surprise as the actor is a part of multiple upcoming projects, and is said to be busy till 2020. Starting with Vimaanam, Detroit Crossing, the untitled Anjali Menon project, Aadu Jeevitham, Karnan, Veluthampi Dalava, Syamanthakam and, of course, My Story, Prithviraj is completely booked.
Speaking of busy schedule and unavailability of dates, director of My Story, Roshni Dinaker, had recently accused Prithviraj of not giving her enough dates to complete the film. According to media reports, the director claimed that even after paying him an amount of Rs 1 crore, Prithviraj did not give them dates. When this matter reached the Kerala Film Chamber, it was decided that the actor will first complete My Story before he begins work on the Anjali Menon project.
The team of My Story has, in fact, begun to shoot their next schedule in Mysuru and the team shared its details on their official Facebook page.
