The film has additional screenplay work by Deepu Pradeep. Christy Sebastian will handle the editing, while Tamil music director Dhibu Ninan Thomas, who worked on the films Maragadha Nanayam and Kanaa, will compose the music. UGM Entertainment, the production house known for backing films like Amar Akbar Anthony and Kattappanayile Ritwik Roshan, is producing the project, which will be dubbed in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada.
Tovino’s immediate next release is Kilometres and Kilometres, directed by Jeo Baby. He recently completed shooting for the investigation thriller, Forensic.
