Yoodlee Films, which is the cinematic arm of India’s oldest music label, ‘Saregama’, will be producing the film under their banner.

For director Darwin Kuriakose, it’s an exciting time to be working in the sphere of Malayalam cinema with different stories coming to the fore. He shares, “I feel that the Malayalam cinema is on the cusp of winning audiences from across the length and breadth of the country and to have an accomplished production house in the form of Yoodlee on board to produce this film underscores my belief that we are going pan-India like never before.”
