Fascinated by the beautiful locations in the district of Kottayam Rijoy has embarked on this project to showcase the best of Kottayam.

Why this music video is outstanding is just because, lion’s share of this visual treat is shot on a helicam which showcases the ariel view of some of the breath-taking locations in Kottayam.

While talking with Rijoy, he has told that this music video has been released as a Christmas Gift for the people of Kottayam and for those who enjoy the natural beauty and cultural diversity of the district.

Regarding the work Rijoy has told that as unauthorized helicam video shot is not allowed in Kerala, it took several months to get approval from the authorities to start the work.

The official videographer of this music video is Mr. Sooraj, Malayalam Movie Solo (Dulquer Salman) Fame and a person who has worked for many Malayalam movies.

During the talk, Rijoy has mentioned the names of about Vidhu Prathap (Renowned Playback Singer) & Rajesh Cherthala (Professional Flute Instrumentalist), both of them were involved in this project and felt grateful for their support.
