The technical crew was revealed to feature Johan Shevanesh as the music director, Prasanna S Kumar as the cinematographer. V.P. Viji as the Producer. Furthermore, Drums Sivamani contributed to the film's title track.[3][4] The film began production in Kodaikanal during early December 2016.[citation needed]
