Not all is hunky-dory in the Love in Anjengo team with actor-director Pratap Pothen coming out on Facebook against the project, declaring that he is not anymore doing it.

Apparently, he was taking a dig at director and scriptwriter Anjaly Menon who has written the script for the movie which has Dulquer Salman in the lead.

The initial reports had it that Pratap Pothen was returning to direction after a huge gap of 20 years for the movie.

The movie had Lakshmi Menon playing the female lead and director-cinematographer Rajeev Menon cranking the camera.

However, the latest news has come as a disappointment for film buffs who expected a visual treat.
