Reportedly, the Chinese filmmakers had first approached the makers of the Hindi version for rights, not knowing that the film was originally made in Malayalam. Director Jeetu Joseph who also wrote the film said that the film clicks across borders because of the theme of family love and father-daughter bond.

Indian films have a strong fan following in China with films like Secret Superstar, Dangal and Baahubali doing very well at the Chinese office. However, this is probably the first time that an Indian film was remade in China.
