The art direction is by K Aarusamy and action choreography is by Mahesh Mathew. The film is all set to be released in Telugu as well and the Telugu version is titled Hatya.
The project is bankrolled by Infiniti Film Ventures and Lotus Pictures. Vijay Antony was last seen in the long-delayed Tamilarasan and Pichaikkaran 2. However, both films opened to mixed reviews and met with a lukewarm response at the box office. Hence, expectations are riding high on the film.
