This was a tiny little seed in my head 6 months ago, and over the last few months, we gave it love, care, and nourishment and watched it come to life. So I suppose, it's safe to call this My First Baby,” she wrote. Extending her gratitude to the rest of the cast and crew who worked on the project, she added that the movie is all set to release on October 30. “Bunch of people I love came together to make it, right from the heart. And on the 30th of October, Thonnal will step out from our heart, and hopefully make its way into yours! Also, Happy Birthday to Me,” Ahaana Krishna penned. 

The Ahaana Krishna directorial Thonnal is shot by Nimish Ravi. Popular music composer Govind Vasantha has been roped in to take care of the soundtrack and background score for the project. Further details pertaining to the release of the film are awaited.
