Anu Emmanuel of “Action Hero Biju”-fame will be seen opposite the actor in the movie, which has been scripted by Shibin Francis. The details of the other cast and crew members of the film have been kept under wraps for now.
Earlier, rumours had it that the “Charlie” actor plays the role of a dancer in the Amal movie. However, a source close to the actor confirmed to International Business Times India that the news is fake.
