The video message is released to commemorate the 12th death anniversary of Unnikrishnan. In the video, Adivi said he was in San Francisco when he first sawUnnikrishnan on news channels. "He [Unnikrishnan] impacted my life from the first moment I knew about him. It was in 2008, I remembered seeing his photographs splashed across all the channels. It was momentous. I didn't know what to make of it," Adivi said. He further said that there was some sort of madness in the Major's eyes and a small smile on his face. Adivi said that the Major looked like one of his family members or an older cousin. Adivi added that he wanted to learn more about Unnikrishnan and therefore, he started researching on him. The actor said he used to collect all the newspaper clippings which were published on the Major's birth and death anniversary. He gradually became confident that he could pull off a film on the life of Unnikrishnan. Adivi also approached the parents of the Major who was awarded the Ashok Chakra posthumously. He said the father of the major was in complete disbelief when he got to know that Adivi will be making a film on his son's life. Adivi went to Bengaluru and spent time with the parents of the Major and learn more about his life. Sharing the look test on Twitter, Adivi said that the highest compliment was when Unnikrishnan's mother told him that he looks like her son from afar. Check it out here
