Ibrahim's upcoming project is another Malayalam movie, Y, featuring forty new faces, each having an equally important role. According to him, the story itself is the main hero of the film. Ibrahim is not only directing Y but has also written the script of this suspense thriller. He claims it to be a realistic work, portraying the differences of people's mindsets on the same incident. It is produced under the banner of his own production house, Vibezon.
