Narain replaces Kunchacko Boban
Actor Kunchacko Boban has opted out of the ongoing project Kammath & Kammath citing date hassles. Now, his role will be played by Narain, who seems to be a regular replacement for Kunchacko.
In Lal Jose' Classmates, it was Kunchacko who was penciled in to play the role eventually played by Narain.
Even in the recently released Ayalum Njanum Thammil, Kunchacko was to play Prithviraj's friend, the character that later went to Narain.
According to rumours, Kunchacko is riding high after several hits during recent times and he was hesitant to play the role in Kammath & Kammath, which had shades of grey.
Mammootty and Dileep play the heroes in the film.
