The movie, which will be shot in Tamil, Telegu and Kannada is being produced by N. Lingusamy. The script has been written by Crazy Mohan while Yuvan Shankar Raja is giving the music to the film. It will be directed by Ramesh Aravind. Aravind had acted with Kamal Hassan in several earlier movies like Panchathanthiram, Manmadhan Ambu and Sathi Leelavathi and had directed him in the Kannada movie, Rama Shama Bhama.
Asin had last acted with Kamal Hasan in the block buster movie Dashavatharam but since then she had devoted her time exclusively to Hindi films. Her return and chemistry with Hassan are eagerly being waited for by the fans.
