In an earlier conversation with Silverscreen India, Raghavapudi had said that it would be period film. “We are trying to figure out how to crack the period structure. Many of them are tough locations to achieve,” he had said.

The film’s music will be composed by Vishal Chandrashekhar. It is produced by Swapna Cinema and presented by Vyjayanthi Movies.


The film was first announced in July 2020. In January, Raghavapudi had posted a few photos of the team from Kashmir as part of the pre-production work.

Meanwhile, Dulquer has some Malayalam films in the pipeline- biographical crime drama Kurup, and action thriller Salute. In Kurup, Dulquer will essay the role of wanted fugitive Sukumara Kurup. In Salute, which will be directed by Rosshan Andrrews, he will play a police officer.

Dulquer is also part of the Tamil romantic drama Hey Sinamika, written by Madhan Karky.
