Writer-director Midhun Manuel Thomas entered the film world with the superhit movie Ohm Shanthi Oshaana, which was directed by Jude Anthany Joseph. The movie got a lot of pre-release hype owing to its interesting title. But, this was not the title Midhun had in mind. In a recent interview, he revealed that the title he gave was Olakudayum Kung Fu Pandayum. But Jude changed the title. Midhun added that his latest release, Ann Maria Kalippilaanu also had a different title in the beginning. It was titled as Vadakagunda but later changed the name thinking that audience won't watch the movie as the title was giving a different genre description.
