Veteran actress Amala Akkineni, last seen on screen in “Hamari Adhuri Kahani“, will be seen playing a lawyer in the upcoming Malayalam film “C/O Saira Banu“, which marks her return to the industry after two decades.

Amala’s last Malayalam outing was the 1991 Mohan Lal-starrer “Ulladakkam“.

“Amala plays a lawyer called Annie John Tharavadi, and will be sharing screen space with Manju Warrier, who will play the protagonist Saira Banu,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.

To be helmed by debutant Antony Sony, the film is slated to go on the floors soon.
