Following Anoop Sathyan, another son of veteran filmmaker Sathyan Anthikkad is venturing into direction, and he has roped in Fahadh Faasil for the project. The twin brother of Anoop, Akhil Sathyan assisted his father before on several films, including the recent Njan Prakashan.
Apart from directing the film, Akhil has also penned the script of the film. The film is being backed by Sethu Manarkad of Full Moon Cinemas, the same producer behind Sathyan Anthikkad's last two films, Njan Prakashan and Jomonte Suvisheshaangal.
The female lead is expected to be played by a newcomer. The yet-to-be-titled film is scheduled to go on floors in January. Goa and Mumbai are among the filming locations.
Composer Justin Prabhakaran, who recently scored the Vijay Devarakonda-Rashmika Mandanna film Dear Comrade, will work on the music. This will be Justin's second project in Malayalam after Kunjiramayanam.
