Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari has said that it was Dhanush who chose Amala Paul for Amma Kanakku to reprise the role played by Swara Baskar in Nil Battey Sannata.
“We had a round of discussions and Dhanush chose Amala, because she’s a real performer. Although I had not known much about her, I knew I could extract the kind of performance I want for the role. It was a tough role, but I feel she worked really hard to play her character with such conviction,” says Ashwiny.
Produced by Wunderbar Films, Amma Kanakku is all set for release on June 24th along with Raja Mandhiri and Metro.
