However what most of us are not aware is that the lead character of the movie, Adv. Louis Pothan was not originally written for Mammootty. AK Sajan initially had writer-actor Renji Panicker in his mind, when he started scripting the movie. Sajan even narrated the story to Renji, and the scenarist was impressed.

But Renji felt that the character demands a powerful actor like Mammootty, and advised Sajan to plan the project on a larger scale, with the megastar as Louis Pothen. Later, Sajan narrated the script to Mammootty, who immediately agreed to do the project. The team roped in Nayantara as the female lead, considering her great onscreen chemistry with Mammootty. Initially, the role was offered to Muthumani.
