To be directed by Sreejith Babu, the untitled film will be written by Jithu Madhavan, the director of 'Aavesham' and 'Romancham'.

Sajin Gopu has been a part of Jithu Madhavan’s latest films, including Romancham (2023) and Aavesham (2024). His role as Amban, a trusted associate of Fahadh Faasil’s character, Ranga in Aavesham, garnered significant praise and cultivated a dedicated fan base for Sajin.

Sreejith Babu, who played key roles in both films and portrayed a hostel warden in Aavesham, is making his directorial debut with this movie.

Previously, Sreejith Babu had appeared in Maheshinte Prathikaram (2016). The script for the movie is penned by Jithu Madhavan.
