Popular yesteryear actress Amala Akkineni returns to Malaylam moviedom after a quarter of a century. And she does so in style. Amala is all set to share screen-space with Malayalam female superstar Manju Warrier in the movie c/o Saira Bhanu to be directed by Antony Sony. She reportedly plays the character of an advocate.
Manju welcomed the senior actor who enjoyed a massive fan-base during her heydays with a post on Facebook.
âToday, met Amala Madam for the first time. Time has left her untouched. It remains the same face that enthralled me and moved me to tears with her portrayal of âSurya Puthri. [âEnteh Suryaputhrikkuâ (My Daughter of the Sun) was one of Amalaâs Malayalam blockbusters.] Hence even though she is making a comeback after a quarter of a century, the gap was simply not felt. It was as if someone who bid you goodbye yesterday has re-entered your home today. With a complete absence of unfamiliarity, she gifted me with a friendship that seemed to have been moulded over the yearsâŚ.the location of c/o Saira Bhanu somehow seems sweeter now,â Manju wrote on Sunday.
In the movie, Manju essays the title role of a post-woman who hails from a middle-class Muslim family in Kochi.
Amala's last Malayalam outing was the 1991 Mohanlal-starrer Ulladakkam.
Popular Telugu superstar Nagarjuna Akkineni is the husband of Amala who is also well-known for her philanthropic activities. She is also the brain behind Blue Cross in Hyderabad that she co-founded with her husband.
