"Ennu Ninte Moideen" is based on the real-life love story of Moideen and Kanchanamala who lived in Mukkam near Kozhikode in Kerala.
Kanchana, a Hindu and Moideen, a Muslim were from well-respected families in Mukkam. They were friends from childhood and fell in love as they grew up. Though their parents were friends, they opposed their marriage because of religious differences. All their efforts to be together were in vain. Eventually, forced by the families, they parted their ways.
Disheartened Moideen turned to social work, then became a sports correspondent in Mathrubhumi newspaper and later produced Malayalam films in 70s and 80s. Meanwhile, Kanchana was pushed for marriage alliances by her family, but she stood strong on her decision of not getting married. She even tried to attempt suicide.
Moideen met a tragic end in a boat mishap in river Irivanchippuzha in 1982. Kanchana who is a septuagenarian now is heading 'B P Moideen Seva Mandir' in the memory of her love.
