Asif Ali will reprise the character of Manu Raghav in Black Coffee, a spinoff of the 2010 film Salt N’ Pepper. Asif had played one of the lead characters in Salt N’ Pepper, directed by Aashiq Abu. Baburaj who played a supporting character in the 2010 movie will direct Black Coffee and also play an important role in it.

Sunny Wayne and Oviya are playing the lead pair in Black Coffee. Sunny will be seen playing an aspiring filmmaker. Asif Ali had played a flirtatious character in Salt N Pepper, who ends up in a complicated relationship with Mythili.

According to the director, Black Coffee is a spinoff of Salt N’ Pepper as food plays the central character in it. Baburaj, Lal, Shwetha Menon and Mythili will be seen reprising the roles they had done in Salt N’ Pepper. Explaining about the film, Baburaj has said in an interview to the Times of India, “The story begins when my character in Salt N’ Pepper, home cook Babu, leaves Kalidasan's (Lal) home after Kalidasan marries Maya (Shwetha Menon). He turns insecure as he continues to be a chronic bachelor, a bhrahmachari who is shy around women. He feels Kalidasan has no affection towards him anymore.” 

About the lead stars Sunny Wayne and Oviya’s roles, Baburaj said, “His character Davis works as an assistant director and dreams of directing his movie soon. Oviya plays an American Malayali who comes down to Kochi with dreams of becoming an actor. When she realises that it isn't as easy as she thought, she becomes a successful model.”

Black Coffee is under progress and is likely to hit the marquee for Onam this year. It may be noted here that Salt N’ Pepper turned out to be a sleeper hit in 2011 with the film collecting ₹5.1 crore from 50 days of its release in Kerala box office.
