An year ago actor turned director Mahesh was waiting in the doorsteps of her house at Bangalore, for casting her as the heroine of the movie �Calendar. But Sumalatha couldnt give a positive nod to the film due to the Lok Sabha elections of the time, in which her husband Ambareesh was also a candidate. Later Mahesh managed to complete the movie by bringing in Zarina Wahab for the role. But now as Major Ravi has approached the star for his new military flick Kandahaar, Sumalatha immediately agreed to be in the film with not many second thoughts. Yes, for the lovers of that senior heroine who made a good screen pair with Mammootty in many superhits of the late eighties, this is pretty good news. Sumalatha is going to make a comeback to Malayalam with the new Mohanlal -Major Ravi movie �Kandahaar�. She will be appearing in a short role as the wife of the character played by Amithabh Bachchan in the movie. Sumalatha was last seen in Malayalam in the Joshy movie Ee Thanutha Veluppan Kalathu which came in the early nineties.
