A  nimal welfare activist Amala Akkineni, who was last seen Hamari Adhuri Kahani (2015), is all set to play an advocate in the forthcoming Malayalam flick C/O Saira Banu, alongside Manju Warrier.

Directed by debutant filmmaker Antony Sony Sebastian, this venture will mark the Agni Natchathiram star’s return to Mollywood after a gap of 25 years. She was last seen in the Mohanlal-starrer Ulladakkam (1991).

“This emotional drama will see Manju as Saira Bhanu, a postwoman, and Amala in the role of Ani John, and will go on floors by September. As of now, Kochi has been finalised as one of the key locations to shoot. The makers wanted someone, who would elevate the screen presence. So, they chose Nagarjuna’s wife, who has been missing in action for a long while. The team was keen on getting her on board. Both Manju and Amala have equal importance on screen,” said a source.

We also hear that Shane Nigam of Kismath fame will also play an integral role in the project. This film will be produced by Eros International in association with Mactro Films.
