Director Shreejith Vijayan said the film is a psychological thriller: “When people hear about a thriller, they think of a crime first, then an investigation and all sorts of things related to it. But ‘Shero’ is a film that delves deep into the character’s psychology. “
Regarding Sunny Leone, the director said, “She is very professional. Be it her punctuality when she arrives on set or her effort to understand the character, Sunny Leone takes her job very seriously. We held a workshop before the shoot. We don’t usually do workshops here in the south. But this workshop really helped us speed up the work. She took part in the week-long workshop, we discussed the character in detail and so the shoot was relatively easy, considering how big she is a star. “
