It also marks the directorial debut of Kamal KM, who earlier assisted Santosh Sivan. On being asked why he decided to provide his support to the film, Resul points to his FTII background.
“It’s a collaboration by a handful of FTII graduates who thought Kamal’s script was sincere enough to be made into a film. Call it an indie effort but the story resonates with anyone who lives in a city.” Kamal feels I.D. is an attempt to make the kind of cinema a film student wants to. He adds, “You always want to make something without compromising on the cinematic elements. We’ve tried to do that.”
