Ahaana Krishna was initially approached to play a crucial role in Prithviraj Sukumaran's Bhramam. The film is an official remake of the Bollywood film Andhadhun starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Radhika Apte, and Tabu. Ahaana's father Krishna Kumar made an explosive statement saying that his daughter was dropped from the film after he joined BJP recently. Ahaana took to Instagram stories and wrote, "Just keep me away from it. I am not even in the picture, I have not blamed anyone. Some who spoke might be related to me, but it is always another person’s opinion. Don’t count me in. I have nothing to do with this drama. I have always declared that I’ve been a huge fan of Prithviraj from the early days. So don’t say anything otherwise, maddeningly."
