The short film features cinematographer turned actor Natraj, Gayathri, Tejaswini and Deekshala as the lead actors. At the promo meet of the film, Kadambur Raju said, “I watched Chocolate . Inspired from a real life incident that took place in the city, the makers have come out with this film, which is an eye-opener to parents as well as people in the society. They should continue giving more such films with socially relevant subjects.”
