Malayalam films did not resume shooting for a long time after the relaxation of the earlier lockdown restrictions imposed due to COVID-19. The restrictions had forced all production work to stop in the state. The Kerala Film Producers Association insisted that all new film shootings should wait for the movies, which had been completed much earlier, to release. However theatres are still not open and the few odd releases so far have happened on online streaming platforms. The first Malayalam OTT release was Sufiyum Sujatayum starring Jayasurya, Aditi Rao Hydari and newcomer Dev Mohan, on July 3 on Amazon Prime Video. Two days later, Musical Chair, a film directed by Vipin Atley released on Mainstream TV.

Nivin's last release was the critically acclaimed film Moothon, directed by Geetu Mohandas. Aishwarya’s last Malayalam release was Brother’s Day in which she played one of the female leads opposite Prithviraj.She also made her Tamil debut in a film called Action and has two other Kollywood films in the pipeline.

Nivin has among his upcoming releases Thuramukham directed by renowned cinematographer-filmmaker Rajeev Ravi. Gauri, directed by Vysakh, is another film which is in pre-production stage. He also has the upcoming film Padavettu, directed by Liju Krishna and produced by actor Sunny Wayne.
