Aathi Narayana is a 2012 Tamil film directed by Vetrivendhan, which featured Kajan and Meera Jasmine in the lead roles. After a four-year delay in production, the film released on 27 April 2012.



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 title 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 25 August 2009 with director Perarasu taking the opportunity as a stage to vent out against heroines who get overpaid.[5]
