The Bramayugam director also added that he never makes films for himself, or to showcase his ideologies. Rahul also added that his films are made solely for the audiences.

The making of Bramayugam

Rahul Sadasivan stated that he was always very particular about taking a unique route with Bramayugam. According to the director, he first pitched the idea to the production house. He was very sure that he wanted to make the film in a period setting in black-and-white format. Rahul was also adamant that he would make the film only if Mammootty came on board to play the role of Kodumon Potti. However, he approached the megastar only after the production banner, Night Shift Studios decided to back his vision wholeheartedly.

Bramayugam is made for theatres

In his interview with The Cue Studio, Rahul Sadasivan also revealed that Bramayugam is a film that is specifically made for the theatres.
