The announcement of Paava Kadhaigal was made soon after the release of Putham Pudhu Kaalai, an anthology showcasing the works of directors Kongara, Menon, Suhasini Mani Ratnam, Rajiv Menon, and Karthik Subbaraj on Amazon Prime Video. A month back, Netflix had also announced Navarasa, a Tamil anthology conceived by director Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan, the co-founder of Qube Cinema.

Talking about the influx of regional content on OTT platforms, Menon, who is directing one story and has also acted in Paava Kadhaigal, told Silverscreen India, that earlier there was very little focus on Tamil content, which is now growing. He added that he hopes to see more opportunities in the future.

Paava Kadhaigal will be bankrolled under the RSVP Movies banner, headed by Ronnie Screwvala, and the Flying Unicorn entertainment banner, headed by Ashi Dua Sara.
