Images from the sets of the shoot for the song were recently shared, with Jyothika and actress Lakshmi Manchu having a whale of a time. The makers have reportedly bought the official rights to the song and used it as is, as a Malayali number without remixing it.

Directed by Radha Mohan, the remake will release on Jyothika’s birthday, October 18. The film stars Vidhaarth as Jyothika’s husband and has Lakshmi Manchu playing Neha Dhupia’s role from the original.
