Fahadh Faasil, Dileesh Pothan and Syam Pushkaran were supposed to work together in another film titled ‘Thankam’. It was to be directed by ‘Theeram’ fame Saheed Arafath with Syam Pushkaran as the scenarist. Fahadh, Joju George and Dileesh Pothan were announced as the lead actors. Shoot for the film was scheduled to begin by mid-2020 but it got delayed due to the pandemic. Since the film is set mostly outside Kerala, the makers have decided to shelve it for now.
