The male lead of the movie will be revealed very soon. The filmmaker also revealed that the leading man will get a makeover for the project.
According to Nirmal Sahadev, the film is reminiscent of the stories that his mother and grandmother told him in his childhood.

Director Nirmal also revealed that it is the toughest yet most fun he has worked on so far.
