He is also the producer of his new directorial venture Comrade in America, with Dulquer Salmaan in the lead role.
Jayesh Mohan, who worked as the still photographer in Aashiq’s previous film Rani Padmini, will crank the camera. He has earlier operated camera for Sunil Ibrahim-directed Y. This is for the first time that Tovino acts in Aashiq’s film. He is currently acting in his debut Tamil film directed by B. R. Vijayalakshmi.
