Enai Noki Paayum Thota (lit. The bullet aimed towards me) is an upcoming Indian Tamil-language romantic thriller film written and directed by Gautham Menon and produced by Gautham Menon. The film features Dhanush, Megha Akash and Ramaguru (debut) in the lead roles. Production began in March 2016,[1] but by January 2017 had been delayed so that Director Gautham Vasudev Menon could work on his other project Dhruva Natchathiram. The final leg of the shooting will begin in July,2018. In January 2017,[1] media outlets reported that the music director, who had previously been called Mr. X, was in fact Darbuka Siva. In October 2017, Gautham Menon confirmed Siva's involvement.[2] The movie is scheduled for release on September 2018.




Gautham Vasudev Menon first revealed that he had prepared a script titled Enai Noki Paayum Thota in mid-2013, when he narrated the film to Suriya. The pair opted not to work on the project and instead began pre-production work on another film, Dhruva Natchathiram, instead during the period.[3]

Cinematographer Jomon T. John joined the team in March 2016.[citation needed]


In March 2016, Gautham Vasudev Menon announced that he would direct a film, which would feature Dhanush and Megha Akash, and some debut actors like Ramaguru in the lead roles.[4] In May 2017, Sunaina was cast in an unspecified role.[5] Actor Sasikumar was cast in an important role. [6]


The project was officially launched on 14 March 2016 in Chennai.[1][7]

After a long production break, the shoot resumed in mid-December 2017 and the final schedule began.[8] Production was further delayed when Dhanush opted to complete his other project Maari 2 before resuming shoot on this.[9] Filming ended by late June.[10]
