They have earlier acted together in the 2010 movie Kandahar that was directed by Major Ravi and also in the Ram Gopal Varma's movie titled Aag. Both films were however weren't particularly successful.
Randamoozham is the screen adaptation of M.T. Vasudevan Nair's novel of the same name and is touted to be a multilingual project.
Peter Hein, the popular fight choreographer who met with a lot of success in India following the Mohanlal-starring blockbuster Pulimurugan is all set to train the actors for the intense fight scenes that director Sreekumar plans to feature in the film.
