Solo is produced jointly by Abraham Mathew and Bejoy Nambiar under the banners Getaway Films and Abaam Films. The film is a bilingual that will be released in Malayalam and Tamil. On his role in the film, the actor was quoted by the Times of India as saying, “Yes, it's more of Bejoy's take on a few elements like wind, water and fire. He is doing four different stories in this film and I am part of one of them. In my story, my character Major Dev Pratap Singh imparts a few life experiences to Dulquer's character Rudra on relationships. It doesn't have anything more to do with the army so I didn't have to do any army-style preparations.”

Interestingly, Dino Morea made his debut in Tamil with Kandukondein Kandukondein, which has Dulquer’s dad Mamootty playing the lead role.
