The shooting of the film also started on the same day.
Premlal had made an impressive debut with Athmakadha in 2010, which had Sreenivasan playing a visually impaired man.
Sreenivasan is playing the lead in Outsider as well, along with Indrajith and Pasupathi.
In his trademark style, Sreenivasan had the crowd in splits during his speech at the pooja.
Outsider is being produced under the banner of Gowri Meenakshi Movies. The cinematographer is Sameer Haq and the music is by Sangeeth.
