In June 2011, actor Vijayakanth revealed that his youngest son Shanmugapandian would be introduced as an actor in the Tamil film industry and began looking for apt scripts for his debut venture. Shanmugapandian, then a Visual Communications student at Loyola College, Chennai, began taking dance lessons and martial arts practice, to get into better physical shape before his first film. Vijayakanth initially considered remaking the Telugu film, Brindavanam (2010) as well other projects directed by K. S. Ravikumar and Hari, but later opted for an original script written by Naveen, with dialogues by Velumani. By the end of 2012, it was finalised that Vijayakanth’s brother-in-law L. K. Sudhish would be the film’s producer and newcomer Santhoshkumar Rajan, would be director. The film was launched on 12 December 2013 at Aandal Azhagar Illam in Saligramam, Chennai with several of Vijayakanth’s contemporaries in attendance. Early reports speculated that actor Vijay and Vijayakanth himself, would play guest roles, but speculation was denied.
