B Unnikrishnan revealed that Vishal was not the initial choice to play this pivotal character. During the scripting stages, the director had Prithviraj in mind as he wanted a clash of the equals. He wanted Prithvi to be pitted opposite Mohanlal. However, the actor was busy with shooting abroad and had other prior commitments. Later, Prithvi himself suggested the director to find a suitable replacement.
