    According to Sujith, the character James was not written exclusively for Prithviraj. Several popular actors of the industry were considered for the role initially, as they were all perfect for the role.

    But, it was with Prithviraj, to whom Sujith narrated the story for the first time. But it was during the filming of Mumbai Police, and the Sujith Vasudev was not ready for his directorial debut that time.

    Later, the director felt that Prithviraj can play the role perfectly, as he can perfectly essay the different looks of James. The actor can look young and aged at the same time, which is one of his biggest plus points.
