Production[edit]

The project was announced in March 2008 with the production house announcing that they had audaciously signed Meera Jasmine to feature alongside a newcomer in their new project titled Deivamagan - though the tile was changed after pressure from the makers of an old film with the same name.[1] The director, debutant Vetrivendhan, revealed that the team initially wanted to title the film as Deiva Magan as the film revolved around a psychotic character but later opted to call it Aathi Narayana after the lead character's name.[2][3] Shooting took place throughout late 2008 and in early 2009 with the November rains hampering progress.[4]

The audio release of the film was held on August 25, 2009 with director Perarasu taking the opportunity as a stage to vent out against heroines who get overpaid.[5]
