Unni Mukundan has signed a new film titled Gandharva Jr. Billed as a fun-filled fantasy entertainer, the film marks the directorial debut of Vishnu Aravind, a former associate in Second Show and Kalki. Praveen Prabharam and Sujin Sujathan, who co-wrote Kalki, have scripted this upcoming film as well. It is produced jointly by Little Big Films, and JM Infotainment.
According to the makers, Gandharva Jr is a fun tale of a gandharvan's arrival and the subsequent events.
