Director Vivek tells us that the story of the protagonist, played by Asif, will be quite a relatable yet coming-of-age tale. He explains, “The film tells the story of one man’s fight against the system. Though it’s shot in Chennai, Asif’s character is a Malayali and at a time in which a lot of us work away from our hometowns, individuals and families will be able to connect with the premise of the film well.”
Vivek, whose previous film Athiran was with Fahadh Faasil, says that years before, he had planned a movie with Asif, which did not work out. “It was Fahadh who had introduced Asif to me. There was also a project of mine in which Asif and Fahadh should have starred together. However, because of date clashes, it did not work out, eventually. Asif has always been someone who has been very supportive of me, right from my initial days in the industry,” explains Vivek, who is also thrilled to team up with Bobby and Sanjay – who too were alumni of the school Pallikkoodam in Kottayam like him – for this film.
