Gautham and Simbu had previously collaborated on Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada and the short film Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn.
Director Ganesh had described Simbu’s role as a character he hasn’t done before. Kayadu Lohar was initially approached to play the leading lady in the film, later, the role went to Siddhi Idnani in January 2022.
The filming of the movie began on August 7 last year in Tiruchendur town of Tamil Nadu. The shooting was halted on August 23, 2021, due to a dispute between the Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) and the Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI), after several producers complained about Simbu’s failure to fulfill his commitment for several projects he had signed. However, the shooting of the film resumed after a compromise between the two rival sides.The film’s shooting was then deferred multiple times due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
Meanwhile, Simbu will also be seen in films like- Maha, Pathu Thal and Corona Kumar.
