He gets to deliver punchlines, show off his dancing skills and also has a bunch of girls drool over him. In short, Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu will aim to establish him as a commercially viable hero.

Pranav Mohanlal played a parkour enthusiast in his first film. He underwent training in free-running to perform his own stunts of jumping from one building to the next in the film. For his role in Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu, the actor took surfing lessons in Bali.

The title Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu is inspired by Mohanlal’s hit film Irupatham Noottandu (1987), which was directed by K Madhu. The movie is set to release on January 25, 2019.
