The makers are planning to start shooting from October 5 and will be shot entirely in Chennai.

Talking to a daily, Anjana said Vettri will be a coming-of-age drama of a boy who grows up amidst violence. "The film traces the journey of a boy from his school days to the point where he gets a job. The entire team felt that Mugen would be the right fit for the role, as it demanded someone really young who can pull off the raging scenes efficiently.", said the director

Anjana feels that shooting for the film with the ongoing restrictions is a blessing in disguise. "Since we have to shoot with limited members, I believe our work will be more efficient now. The film has certain sequences which demand crowds; we will have to wait for the restrictions to be lifted to shoot those."
