It is said that the actor has not something like this before in his four-decade-long career. Along with him, the movie also has Shine Tom Chacko, Jacob Gregory, Sudhi Koppa, Arjun Ashokan, Dileesh Pothan, and Alencier Ley Lopez in supporting roles.
Unda’s technical crew includes ‘Jigarthanda’ fame Gavemic U Ary cranking the camera and Prashanth Pillai handling the music department. For action choreography, the makers have signed Sham Kaushal from Bollywood. Khalid Rahman has penned the story and screenplay is by Harshad.
Movie Mill will be presenting the movie in association with Gemini Studio. The movie is slated to go on floors early next month and is scheduled to hit screens in January, 2019.
