Meanwhile, Kunju has completed her graduation and dreams of pursuing an MBA from IIM. However, due to the suggestions of her parents’ astrologer, she is compelled to marry Shivadas, a workaholic corporate executive known as ‘Das.’ Following their wedding, Divya relocates to Bangalore with Das, who is already settled there.

Following the triumph of “Manjadikuru” and “Ustad Hotel,” Anjali Menon revealed her next venture, initially referred to as “L for Love.” However, she later clarified that the film’s actual title was “Bangalore Days.” Anwar Rasheed and Sophia Paul were announced as the producers for the project.
Principal photography for “Bangalore Days” commenced in December 2013 and concluded in March 2014, with a total shooting duration of 70 days. The film was predominantly shot in Bangalore and Kochi, with a budget of ₹8.5 crore (equivalent to US$1.1 million).
The soundtrack of “Bangalore Days” consists of five songs composed by Gopi Sunder. However, Gopi Sunder faced a legal challenge when he was sued for copyright infringement by Bryan Adams. The basis of the lawsuit was the striking similarity between the song “Nam Ooru Bengaluru” and Adams’ popular track “Summer of ’69”.
Initially planned for a release on 9 May 2014, “Bangalore Days” encountered production delays that necessitated a rescheduling. Eventually, the film hit the screens on 30 May 2014 across 205 theaters, making it one of the largest releases for a Malayalam film. Notably, the film enjoyed a simultaneous release throughout India.
