His role in the film is also said to be similar to his 2006 political drama Lion. Recently, the film crew had released a short making video of Ramaleela and it had gone viral on the internet creating a lot of expectations.

Actor Prayaga Martin plays the female lead and Kalabhavan Shajon, Renji Panicker, Salim Kumar, Mukesh and Vijayaraghavan among others play the supporting cast. Meanwhile, Radhika Sarathkumar, who plays Dileep’s mother in the film, will return to Malayalam cinema after a gap of 24 years with this film. It has been scripted by Sachi, and Gopi Sunder has scored music for the film, which is expected to hit the screens next month. However, an official confirmation is awaited.
