Following the success of Pariyerum Perumal, actor Kathir decided to shift his acting career into a commercial flick for the first time by signing to act in an action thriller film directed by debutant Naveen Nanjundan in around 2018 with the actor agreed to have portrayed the role of a police cop for the first time in his career through this project.[4][5] The film was extensively shot in Chennai, Puducherry and Hyderabad.

The film was earlier planned for a theatrical release in around February 2019 but was postponed to have its release on 1 March 2019 due to tight race at the box office.[10] The film was later confirmed to hit the screens on 8 March 2019.
