Shaji Kailas and producer Anto Joseph had initially announced that Reema Sen will play the heroine in their King and Commissioner.
Why sign a glam girl like Reema Sen, when there are no songs or romance?
But the latest we hear is that since the film is about "macho men and political conspiracies", there is no need of songs or a glam doll!
The script writer Renji Panikkar felt that there is no scope in the film for the two central characters Joseph Alex or Bharathchandran to romance or dance around.
So the producers have signed Kannada actress Sanjanaa to do the role of a fearless lady cop. They say that Sanjanna was the apt choice as the cop character had to look fit.
Sanjanaa had earlier done a very glamorous role in Mohanlal's yet to be completed Rosshan Andrew's Casanova.
