Sajimon has previously worked as an associate director on the films Android Kunjappan and Ente Ummante Peru.
Mahesh Narayanan is also the film's cinematographer, while Arju Benn, who edited Kohinoor and Ente Ummante Peru, will handle editing duties. Interestingly, Arju had also assisted Mahesh in the editing of CU Soon.
