Malayalam filmmaker Anjali Menon, who rose to fame with the blockbuster movie Bangalore Days, has slammed the recent rumours about her helming the project, which was discontinued by actor-director Pratap Pothen.
"The news that is doing the rounds is fake. As of now, I'm working on my next directorial," Anjali told The Times of India.
Pratap had recently announced his plans to drop directing the Dulquer Salmaan movie titled Love in Anjengo. He had confirmed the news while replying to a Facebook user who commented saying that the Dulquer-starrer is one of the much awaited movies in Malayalam. Soon, Pratap replied to his follower that he walked out of the project as he didn't like the script penned by Anjali. The film was earlier announced to be bankrolled by Pratap under his home production banner Supriya as its golden jubilee movie.
"Ty for your kind words ...i am not doing anjengo .....,because i didnt like the script .....and iw alked out .......i will direct only if am going to enjoy the process and not because some genius has written crap [sic]," Pratap replied on Facebook.
Recently, reports had it that Anjali will direct the movie after being dropped by Pratap. However, the latest revelation by Anjali confirms that the Dulquer movie has been shelved as of now. Even though Anjali has not revealed much about her upcoming project, the audience eagerly await for it as she has proved her directorial skills with the movies Happy Journey [segment in Kerala CafÃ©], Manjadikuru and Bangalore Days. She has also scripted the Dulquer Salmaan-starrer Ustad Hotel, helmed by Anwar Rasheed.
