Based on the life of former Indian National Football Team captain V. P.

George of Goodwill Entertainments as producer.[6] It began filming in early April 2017 in Kozhikode.[7] A Santhosh Trophy match sequence was shot at Calicut University Stadium in Thenhipalam, during which Jayasurya injured his right leg, leading to a stay of filming for one week.[8]


Songs and score were composed by Gopi Sundar.[9] The film's audio was released by minister K. T. Jaleel on 28 January 2018, by awarding it to Anitha Sathyan, V. P. Sathyan's wife. As part of the event, a football match between teams Golden 90s led by I. M. Vijayan and Captain Elevens led by Jayasurya was organised at the Safari Ground, Edappal, which was kicked off by C.K.
