In May 2016, Dhana, an erstwhile assistant of Mani Ratnam announced that he would make his directorial debut with a film starring Vijay Yesudas and Bharathiraja in the lead roles. Bharathiraja agreed to work on the film, alongside his commitments for Kutra Parambirai, but later delayed the other venture. The film began filming in Theni later that month.
The film's first look was released by actor Arvind Swamy in February 2017, with the makers revealing that Akhil and actress Amritha had also joined the cast. Amritha had been chosen after the director was impressed with her performance in a short film she had worked on.
