The actor took to Facebook to make the announcement. He posted: Entangled between history, fiction, love and the wonder that is human ingenuity..lies the story of Engineer Kuruvila, and how he made the impossible possible for love! (sic).
According to Pradeep, Metre gauge 1904 is a historical fiction and narrates the events related to the work of Travancore's first metre gauge, the Kollam-Sengottai line.

"Metre gauge 1904 demands a vast pre-production work. So, we can't say for sure when the movie will go on the floors. However, it won't take much long," says Pradeep.Meanwhile, Pradeep's debut movie Vimaanam will release this month. The movie has Prithviraj playing a young man, who dreams of flying a plane. Durga Krishnan plays the lady lead.
