“I met Sreesanth a day before his birthday earlier this month at his home. I knew that he would be able to play the role of a Malayali guy, who mentors a dancer.”

I cast him on my instinct. Initially we had thought of casting someone who is older but when I saw him I felt he is perfect for the role. The character is very close to his persona. I have asked him to retain his Malayali accent. Sreesanth is a natural performer, he is camera friendly and I have a gut feeling that the film will do him good,” Pooja Bhatt said.

Earlier, Sreesanth was linked to a Tamil movie. In that movie he had also signed a contract to compose music for the film and had started work on five songs. But, the project was later shelved, Malayala Manorama reported.
