“I have always wanted to do a period film and I was happy when a prestigious project like Kayamkulam Kochunni came my way. What makes it even more special is that it’s with some of the biggest names in Malayalam.” Connecting with her character Janaki has been easy for her, she says, though she is a yesteryear personality. “Except for one thing. It took me a while to get used to my look as Janaki, though it was exciting to get into her avatar. Her story is very much relevant for women everywhere,” said the actress. She also added that, “For Kochunni, I had to give up three films. We are shooting in so many different locations that the film will take up at least four to five months’ time to wrap up. I had to back out of those films I had signed, because of this reason. But I hope it will all be worth it.” Priya-Anand-at-Kootathil-Oruthan-Press-Meet-900x600

Director Rosshan Andrrews said about Amala Paul’s replacement that, “Due to the recent rains, there were a few changes in our schedule and that affected Amala’s dates. She is a busy actress in Tamil. That is the only reason Amala had to opt out, and so we brought in Priya Anand and she has already started working on the film.”
