Malayalam director Johny Antony, who just commenced the shooting of his next film Tappana with Mammootty and Charmi in the lead, said that he could not find a better actress than Charmi for the female lead of the film.

"Charmi is most suited for this role and we had approached her first. While things did not work out before, we are happy that she is finally part of the project," Johny said.

Further, he alleged that some of the heroines, he approached for the role, wanted money than anything else. "The film's producer Milan Jaleel and I were in talks with a few well-known actresses. But some of the heroines place money above everything else. They do not even see or consider the fact that they are approached for a role of a lifetime," he said.
