The filmmaker is currently busy with his next titled I am Kadhalan. The film is already on the floors.

The coming-of-age film, reportedly made on a budget of ₹3 crore, has minted ₹131.18 cores worldwide, as per Sacnilk. Fahadh Faasil, who backed Premalu, addressed his prowess as a producer in an interview with Onmanorama. He said, "I believe a good producer has an eye for spotting good stories. They are the ones who ensure good stories. They are the ones who ensure good stories are told and I can do that in my capacity as a producer."

He said, "As an actor, I have limitations. I love doing comedy, but I know I need to put in more effort for the kind of comedy I do. Sometimes I am cranky on the sets and have tantrums as an actor. I also insist on retakes for certain scenes we shot probably a week ago. This is part of my process as an actor..."
