On the Asif-Rajisha combo, he opines that they make the most effective pair in Malayalam cinema at present. “They nailed it as a pair of their first film [Anuraga Karikkin Vellam]. I had nice enjoyable working with them. It was simple working with two fabulous actors who seemed to be competing towards one another with their expertise,” Jibu asserts.
Additionally a part of the forged are Johny Antony, Sudheer Karamana, Sreejith Ravi, Kottayam Ramesh, Suresh Kumar, Tulasi Mani (who acted in Sankarabharanam) and Neeraja Rajendran amongst others. “It’s 2 hundredth challenge of the movie’s composer Ouseppachan, who can also be enjoying a big character. I think about it as an honour to have him on board. He’s the senior most member of our crew however nobody can match as much as his vitality,” Jibu says.
