- Apart from Sukumaran, Jana Gana Mana also has Suraj Venjaramoodu as one of the lead actors.
- This film reunites the two after their blockbuster venture, Driving Licence (2019). Also, in Jana Gana Mana, Venjaramoodu will play a cop's character like in Driving Licence, which is exciting news anyway.
- Considering this scenario, if the film gets a sequel, nothing gets better than this.

Malayalam film Queen's director Dino Jose Antony has helmed this project.
Earlier, makers had dropped the film's teaser along with a Mahatma Gandhi quote, "In matters of conscience, the law of the majority has no place." The teaser showed Abbas Jaffar Adeni (Sukumaran) getting interrogated by Venjaramoodu's character, with the former wondering why are there mixed opinions about Gandhi's assassination. Thus, it can be concluded that the film will have a strong Gandhian message.
Sharis Mohammed has penned the script of Jana Gana Mana, while Jakes Bejoy has composed its music. Apart from the ones mentioned before, the film will also have Shammi Thilakan, Raja Krishnamoorthy, Pasupathi and Azhagam Perumal playing key roles.
