On Wednesday, actor Leona Lishoy, who headlines the show, announced the same by sharing a video through social media and captioned it, “8 months of being Mariya.” Produced by Asiaville Studios, the upcoming show also stars Nikhila Vimal in a prominent role.

Sasikumar, the chairman and editor-in-chief of Asiaville, had earlier made Death, Lies & Cyanide, a Spotify podcast detailing the Koodathayi killings.
