While the official announcement of the film is yet to be made, the untitled project will be produced by Chendur Film International banner. It will mark Sasikumar’s first collaboration with Sathyasiva.
Sathyasiva has previously directed the 2012 Tamil comedy thriller Kazhugu and its sequel in 2019.

Sathyasiva added that the announcement of the film will be made after the results of the upcoming 16th Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly elections are announced.
“As of now, we have decided to launch the film in May,” he said.
The poll in Tamil Nadu will be held on April 6 in a single phase and the results will be announced on May 2.
Asked about the film’s genre, Sathyasiva said, “The script is yet to be finished. There are several rounds of discussions that are happening now. Hence, I do not want to give the wrong information about what genre the film will be.”
