"It is not fare on your part to enact in kamaluddeen's film as Aamy, the story of a ditched woman by a Muslim fanatic! I am sure that you will be degraded by the hindu society! [sic]," a social media user named Mohan Akkapilly wrote.
Meanwhile, another user asked her not to be a political tool by acting in the biopic of the controversial personality. "Manju Chechi, Don't let yourself be used as a political tool. I have read almost all writings of Madavikkutty. It will be a great disgrace to soul of our dear Writer if there is even a slight distortion of her life story. Only a madavikkutty can write something like Ente Kadha, Surayya can never. It is being heard that She used to feel regret with the change. She was the one who lost her identity in her latter life chaos. Pls Think wisely before you doing her role [sic]."
Please don't get involved in directly or indirectly in politics. I am not getting involved your personal matter. But it is good to avoid such things.

Dear Manju Chechi, there would be some reason why Bollywood actress Vidya Balan had opted out Aami. Looking at the attitude of Kamal, the movie is sure to be controversial. If so, then it will hurt your fans as well. You can decide if you want to hurt the soul of such a popular writer [translated from Malayalam].
However, many of her fans are waiting to see her play Kamala Das in the movie. "Best of luck Manju, hope you will be taking up the role," writes a social media user.
As an actress she has to and will do any roles such as hindu, christian, muslim, sikh or any religious character, communist, terrorist, lawyer, police officer, nurse, housewife or any roles given by the film director. People should not give it any other meaning. Its just acting. Neither Muslims nor Sang Parivar will read between the lines.

The dream project of the filmmaker narrates the story of popular writer and poet Kamala Das aka Kamala Surayya or Madhavikutty. Bollywood actress Vidya Balan was initially roped in to play the title role. Even after the photoshoot, Vidya recently backed out of the project saying that she isn't able to get into the skin of the character, which is now being replaced by Manju.
