In the film, the actress will play a forensic surgeon, the first-of-its-kind character in Indian cinema, claims the makers. Directed by debutant Anoop Panicker, Cadaver is based on true events. We hear the film revolves around a real-life case handled by former Kerala police surgeon Dr. B Umadathan. She admits, "I had thought a lot whether to invest so much on a debutant director. But finally, I budged." Amala is planning to produce more films based on the box office success of Cadaver. The actress is said to have discussed with Umadathan and also visited various places to research for her character in the film.
Amala Paul said, “As an artist, I have spent a decade experimenting with commercial roles. Now, I believe I have much more clarity in choosing roles that elevate me as an actor. I enjoy doing different roles. That way, I was impressed by Cadaver and co-producing it. I am supporting my producers Pradeep Kumar and Ajay Panicker, who were as passionate I am about the script. I will be seen in a new look, which will surprise the audience.”
