The film’s shooting took place in Thodupuzha region in the Idukki district of Kerala.

In October, the crew ran into trouble after the Panchayat members lodged a complaint against the crew for shooting in a protected area that comes under the Haritha Kerala Mission project in Kudayathur Panchayat in Idukki. The land was taken up for afforestation causes and was inaugurated by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan a few days prior to the incident. However, the issue resolved after Idukki district Collector H Dinesan permitted the crew to shoot under certain conditions.
