Director Kannan has reportedly acquired the rights to remake the film in Tamil as well as Telugu, and might simultaneously shoot in both languages. However, the makers are yet to reveal further details about the Telugu venture.

The Great Indian Kitchen was directed by Jeo Baby and was released on Neestream, a Malayalam OTT platform. With its well- written characters and thought-provoking narrative, the film won praises from fans and critics alike. Many users have taken to social media to draw parallels between the themes discussed in the film and their personal experiences. The Great Indian Kitchen won hearts with its sensitive representation of gender and patriarchal issues in Indian households.

Prime users were elated after the movie was added to Amazon Prime Video recently. Bollywood actor Rani Mukherjee also praised the filmmaker and the entire team for the movie. The Jeo Baby directorial featured actors Suraj Venjarmoodu and Nimisha Sajayan in the lead roles.
