Speculations were rife about the making of the sequel to Gentleman, Gentleman 2 and who will be helming the film. Last year, producer-director KT Kunjumon had announced his next film, Gentleman 2. But, there was no clarity on who will direct the project. 

Now, KT Kunjumon has announced that the film will be directed by A Gokul Krishna. Gokul Krishna had earlier helmed Aaha Kalyanam, which had Nani and Vani Kapoor in the lead. The film was a remake of the Hindi film Band Baaja Baaraat, which had Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh in the lead and it marked his debut in the Tamil film industry. Gokul Krishna has also worked in films like Billa, Arindhum Ariyamalum, Sarvam as the co-director for VishnuVardhan. Though there is no confirmation on whether the film will pick up from where it left in the original, the director says that they are working on the script.

Keeravani will score the music for the film. Nayanthara Chakravarthy and Priya lal will play the leading ladies in it. KT Kunjumon stated that the lead actor and the technicians will be announced soon.

KT Kunjumon's Gentleman (1993) was a heist action film, which was directed by Shankar. The film marked Shankar's debut in the Tamil film industry. The star cast for the film included Arjun and Madhubala in the lead, along with Subhasri, MN Nambiar, Manorama, Goundamani, Senthil,Vineeth, Charan Raja and Rajan P Dev. The plot revolved around Kicha, a businessman dealing with appalam, who moonlights as a thief and gets involved in huge heists. Mani (Goundamani) plays the partner in crime. The film had music by AR Rahman and the soundtrack became a huge hit. While Vaali wrote the lyrics for Chikku Bukku Rayiley and Parkathey, Vairamuthu penned the lyrics for the rest of the songs. The songs were reused in the Hindi version of the film, but Anu Malik was credit as the composer.
