Enai Noki Paayum Thota (lit. The bullet speeding towards me) is an unreleased Indian Tamil-language film romantic action thriller written, directed and produced by Gautham Menon. The film features Dhanush and Megha Akash in the lead roles.



Production began in March 2016,[1] but had been delayed so that Director Gautham Vasudev Menon could work on his other project Dhruva Natchathiram. In January 2017,[1] media outlets reported that the music director, whose identity was initially masked with the name Mr. X, was in fact Darbuka Siva.[2]


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] Principal photography ended in September 2018.[10]
