The film revolves around one character, played by Menen, and was shot in 23 days. The actress told The Hindu:
“It was a draining exercise; I would be enacting one scene in all four languages. In surround sync, the ambient noise gets recorded. So if there’s a bird crowing away where it’s not required, I’d have to do it all over again.”
However, the languages weren’t tough on her as she’s fluent in them.
Meanwhile, Menen’s last film Awe, having released on February 16, is making waves at the box office. The film has reportedly earned Rs 9.40 crores on the first weekend in India alone and more than half a million in the US box office. Directed by newcomer Prashanth Varma, the film also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Esha Rebba, Srinivas Avasarala, Murali Sharma, and is produced by actor Nani.
