Arjun Ashokan and Anna Ben are considered the promising young talents of the Malayalam film industry. 2019 turned out to be a milestone in their respective careers. While Arjun came up with hit films like June, Unda and Stand up, Anna Ben scored hits with Kumbalangi Nights and Helen. Now, they are all set to team up for a new film. It will be directed by Antony Sony, who earlier helmed the film C/o Saira Bhanu.
Speaking about the film in an interview with a popular news daily, Antony Sony said that both the lead actors have equally important roles in the film. He said that Saira Bhanu was a story-driven film, but that it will be a situational film. He said that everyone would be able to relate to the story of his new movie.
Antony stated that both Anna Ben and Arjun Ashokan represent the present youth of society. He added that both of them are exceptional actors. Antony also hoped that Arjun's rise as a lead hero in recent days would help this film as well. Antony revealed that there will be a lot of newcomers in the film. He is currently auditioning various aspiring actors.
Ahmed Khabeer and Libin Varghese are scripting this film. The duo had earlier worked for the film June. The shoot of this film is set to start in mid-May. Most of the film is set in Kochi. Thus, the makers will kickstart the shooting in Kochi itself.
Currently, Arjun Ashokan is acting in Ajagajantharam and Thattassery Koottam. On the flip side, Anna Ben is acting in the film Kaappela.
