In December 2015, debutant director Anand Balki announced that he would be making a film with actor Santhanam in the lead role with Santhosh Narayanan as the music composer. Producer Selvakumar of Kenanya Films bought the rights of the title, Server Sundaram (1964) from AVM Productions and consulted the 1964 film's actor Nagesh's family, before announcing that Anand Balki's film would be titled the same. Subsequently, the team also chose to cast Nagesh's grandson, Bijesh, in a supporting role of a catering college student in the film.. Major portions of the film was shot in and around SRM University, Chennai.
For his role of a caterer in the film, Santhanam took training at a five-star restaurant and learnt skills from the restaurant's staff. The first look poster of the film was released on 20 January 2016 coinciding with Santhanam's birthday, while the makers revealed that project would be shot in Chennai, Goa and Dubai. In June 2016, the team shot a song with YouTube dancers Poonam and Priyanka Shah in Australia, alongside the lead actors. Filming ended by late October 2016.
The soundtrack of the movie is composed by Santhosh Narayanan. The film's soundtrack consists of five songs, four of which were written by Vivek Velmurugan of 36 Vayadhinile and Jil Jung Juk fame, while the fifth song "Kannaal Modhaadhey" was written by Muthamil of Enakkul Oruvan and Vikram Vedha fame.
