The upcoming movie 10 Kalpanakal is the debut directorial venture of editor Don Max and also stars Thampi Antony, Prasanth Narayanan and Joju George in significant roles. While Sangeeth Jain has penned the screenplay, additional scripting has been done by Soorej and Neerej. Produced under the banner of Shutterbugs Entertainments by Manu Padmanabhan Nair, Jiji Anchani, Jacob Koeypuram and Biju Thoranathel, 10 Kalpanakal also marks the comeback of Meera after a short break.

However, after news of Janaki's retirement hit the headlines, it was misinterpreted by netizens who started spreading death rumours of the singer. Soon, popular singer SP Balasubrahmanyam came forward with a Facebook post in which he slammed the rumours about Janaki's health. "Since this morning lots of rumours about Smt. S. Janaki, the Nightingale's health condition. All fake. I just talked to her. She is hale and healthy better than ever. Spread the good news. I dont know how some idiots do this mischief. Sadistic *^#@$÷=?. Long live the queen of Melody [sic]," read the social media post by SPB.
