About the film and her role, Manjima explained, “I am delighted to work with Vijay Sethupathi. I had always wanted to share screen space with him and now I am happy that I got this film. I liked the way the director narrated the script to me. These are the kind of roles that I wanted to do from day one in the industry and I am happy that I am finally getting to do them now. It is a huge star cast, and I couldn’t let go of this script. We all know Vijay Sethupathi is a great actor and I’m sure it will be quite challenging for me.” Manjima is awaiting the release of Zam Zam, the Malayalam remake of Hindi blockbuster, Queen, and Vishnu Vishal’s FIR.
