The film is directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu of Demonte Colony and Imaikka Nodigal fame and is produced by Lalith Kumar.

Since the film shootings have been came to a standstill due to the lockdown, many producers were facing losses. Director Ajay Gnanamuthu, Vikram and the rest of the cast and crew members of the film were shooting in Russia when the Indian government imposed nation-wide lockdown. Hence, the shooting came to a halt with only a few days of the shoot left.

According to latest reports, the makers are planning to release the film on April 17, 2021 for the special occasion of Vikram’s birthday. Earlier there were buzz that the makers were planning to have a Christmas December, 2020 or Pongal January, 2021 release. With only 40 days of shoot left and leaving room for post-production work, if the shoot starts in October, there are chances the movie may hit the screen for Pongal 2021, provided theatres are open.

The film also has Srinidhi Shetty, KS Ravikumar, Indian cricketer Irrfan Pathan, Anand Raj, Mirnalini Ravi, Mamukkoya and Mohammad Ali Baig will be seen in prominent roles.
