Tovino Thomas, in his Facebook post, revealed that the image was captured by acclaimed cinematographer Jomon T John whose latest passion is still photography.

"One of the ace cinematographers of the country found a new interest during the lockdown, and I'm glad to be part of it. Thank you Jomon T john for the new hobby of photography, for featuring me, and for the kickass pics.
