The project, touted as Arjun’s next in Malayalam after the 2019 film Jack and Daniel, has story, script and dialogues by Dinesh Pallath. Director Kannan says, “Asha plays one of the lead characters of the movie, and it is laden with many mysterious elements. The story starts with her character’s personal life. It is also connected to Arjun’s – yet another mysterious character – in the film. His role has negative shades too.” The movie also has Mukesh, Aju Varghese, Harish Peradi, Baiju and Gireesh Neyyar in major roles.
The makers had plans to go on floors on May 3, reveals Kannan. “Even air tickets for the artistes were ready, and just four days before the shoot we heard about the lockdown. We were to shoot in a private area in Perumedu, for about 25 days. Once the lockdown is lifted and permissions are in place, we can start,” he says. The film has music by Ratheesh Vega and Sanand George Grace, penned by Rafeeq Ahammed and Hari Narayanan.
