Sethu said, “Unni Mukundan had asked me to join as an assistant director whenever I did a movie. When I asked Mammootty, he was alright with it. His only concern was about Unni’s acting commitments.

I would like to cast him in all my movies.” The actor has earlier co-starred with Mammootty in Bombay March 12 and Rajadhiraja.
