The film is said to be based on the life of Tiruvarur Murugan, who planned a series of robberies in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, including a high-profile jewellery showroom theft. Murugan, who was a HIV patient, was nursed back to health after he was nabbed by the Bengaluru police.

In police custody, Murugan helped the department solve many crimes that involved him. He passed away due to ill health. We hear that Karthi had requested the team to include the HIV part as well to maintain the authenticity of the story.
