Top Mollywood actress Ananya appears to have bagged a role in Mohanlal’s Kandahar, in which Amitabh has also promised to play a substantial role. The film is based on the hijacking of Indian Airlines flight IC-814 in 1999 while on its way from Kathmandu to New Delhi on Christmas Eve. It was forced to land in three different airports — Amritsar, Lahore, and Dubai — before spending a week on the tarmac in Kandahar with 186 hostages on board.
Ananya will begin shooting for the movie when she has completed her current commitments, including Krishna’s upcoming Seedan. She has also just finished work on Amayakudu, which stars Krishnudu in a complicated plot that involves him falling in love with one girl, whilst another girl falls in love with him, and his parents choose a third girl for him. How will he get out of that one?
Ananya was magnificent as the caustic girlfriend in Naadodigal, the runaway hit of last year, which starred Sasikumar. The film has already been remade in Telugu as Shambo Shiva Shambo and now there’s talk of a Bollywood remake too.
