According to Venu, Blue tells the tale of a director, who stands apart in the industry for his calibre and handles challenging subjects in his films, but struggles to deal with similar instances in real life. Rahman will be essaying the role of the director, while Aparna Nair will play a lawyer in the film.
Adding on, Venu says, "The central character played by Rahman is someone who is looked upon by the film fraternity like a Kum Ki Duk. The film is also passively influenced by the episode of Aruna Shanbaug, the nurse who has been living in a vegetative state for about 40 years and grabbed national attention when a case seeking to euthanise her was rejected by the Supreme Court. We are planning to start the shooting in the first week of July."
Blue will be completely shot in locations including Trivandrum, Alleppey and Munnar. Aparna is quite happy with her role as she has good potential in bringing life to bold roles. The role has ample scope for performance and is quite unlike many of her earlier characters. Shrita Sivadas is also playing a pivotal role in the film and plays a painter named Varsha.
