The film is being produced by Nic arts and directed by Vijay. Audithya is playing the baddie the film for which shooting is now in progress in Hyderabad. However, Audithya makes it clear that he is not acting in his first Tamil film in a stereotypical role and that the role has offered him many opportunities to perform. He says that the producers were impressed with his performance in his recent film Villain.

There were rumours that director Hari, who is now doing Singham II with Surya, was also in search of a suitable actor to play the negative character and had approached Audithya for the role. However, Adithya denies this.

"I received a call from someone close to Hari, asking me whether I will be interested in playing the negative character in the film. I told him that I have to hear the story and know about the characterisation. I have not heard anything from them since", said Audithya.
