Nivin Pauly-starrer Kayamkulam Kochunni, one of the most anticipated period dramas of 2018, has a new addition to its cast. The latest update is that Amala Paul has opted out of the project, citing date issues and Tamil actor Priya Anand has been roped in. Priya made her Malayalam debut in Ezra opposite Prithviraj earlier this year. 

However, when rumours began to do the rounds that she was replaced, Amala took to Twitter to issue a clarification stating she had not been replaced and leaving Kayamkulam Kochunni was her own decision. Her tweet read: FYI I wasn't replaced, I opted out because of date issues, I am not joblessly cooking up stuff. 

The movie, directed by Roshan Andrews, is based on the life of the legendary thief Kayamkulam Kochunni, a desi Robin Hood.  The movie, made on a huge budget, has gone on the floors in Kerala and Sri Lanka. It is scripted by Bobby-Sanjay and the duo spent over two years researching for the project.
