Earlier, we had reported that Aavesham-fame Sajin Gopu and Anaswara Rajan are teaming up for actor Sreejith Babu's directorial debut. Aavesham's director Jithu Madhavan is scripting the yet-to-be-titled film, besides co-producing it with Fahadh Faasil and Arjun Sethu. In the latest development, the Human Rights Commission (HRC) has raised concerns about the film's shoot that happened in the casualty ward of Angamaly Taluk Hospital on Thursday night, which caused significant difficulties for the patients.

Commission member VK Beena Kumari has demanded an explanation from those responsible for granting permission for the shoot in the casualty ward of the government hospital. The commission has directed the Ernakulam district medical officer and the superintendent of Angamaly Taluk Hospital to submit the report within seven days. Legal proceedings were initiated following the commission's suo moto case, triggered by a news report.

Reportedly, the filming happened even while doctors were treating patients. Around 50 people, including the actors, were in the casualty ward. During the shoot, a person accompanying a critically ill person was unable to enter the casualty department due to limited space. Entry through the main gate was also not permitted, and the crew instructed patients and bystanders to remain silent throughout the two-day shoot.
