Ranjith has created many hit films for both the Superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal in the past. Jayaraj, who is producing and directing Gulmohar, says that he finds acting talents in Ranjit. Initially, Ranjith was reluctant to accept the offer, but later Jayaraj convinced him with a suitable character to the young creator.
The shooting of the film was launched last week in Thiruvanathapuram and the film also has Vineeth and Manoi K Jayan in important roles. The big surprise in the cast is the heroine of the film. She is none other than Jayaraj's wife Sabitha, who is making her debut in this film. She is playing the role of college student in this film.
