The event was attended by people from the political and film circles. Mohanlal's film is being directed by VA Sreekumar Menon, while his son's film will be directed by Jeethu Joseph, under whom Pranav worked as an assistant director.

"After hearing all the speeches about the films of my son and mine, for the first time in my life, I feel I am getting tensed," said Mohanlal, while Pranav preferred to remain silent.

Pranav has acted in films before but that was long back when he appeared as a child artiste and won the 2002 Kerala State Film Award for Best Child Artist for his role in the film Punarjani, directed by Major Ravi.
