It is a very well-constructed, taut script and I am looking forward to the filming process because I know my character will take me on a very interesting journey”.
Director Deeno Dennis too shared, “This film is the culmination of a lifelong dream to work with Mammootty sir and this script gave me the opportunity to do so. I feel because Mammootty sir and his fans deserve nothing less than a cinematic life stone”.
