But there have also been instances where no one died.” 

asifHe further added that the movie will be incorporated with elements of Kannur politics as well as the myths and superstition revolving around theyyam. It may be remembered that the last theyyam-based commercial film was Kaliyattam, which starred Suresh Gopi and Manju Warrier in the lead roles.

The pre-production work of the film has already begun. It is reported that the will have two female leads. Casting is on full swing. An official announcement on the cast and crew is expected in the coming days. Filming is expected to start in mid-2020.
