From Delhi, the team will take another transit to Kerala. However, as a precautionary measure to curb the spread of COVID-19, the entire team will be quarantined on returning their home.

While the Jordan government had granted permission to the team shoot there till April 10, the filming was suspended after the same government insisted the team to pack-up due to the COVID-19 threat.

Due to the food shortage and the growing threat of the team getting infected, director Blessy sought the help of authorities in Kerala to return to India. Actor Prithviraj had also taken to his social media pages to update his fans that he and the team were safe and that they were hoping to return home as soon as possible.
