The movie, which will revolve around family relationships, will be set in South Tamil Nadu. It also features Prakash Raj, Soori and Raj Kiran in pivotal roles.
Suriya and Jyothika also produced Karthi’s Kadaikutty Singam, which came out in 2018 and became a success. The movie, which was directed by Pandiraj, was also a film set against a rural backdrop and the producers will be looking to find the same success with their upcoming project.
Viruman will have music composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja. This will be the first time the music director will be working with Muthaiaya. He has previously worked in Karthi’s movies like Paruthiveeran, Paiyaa and Naan Mahaan Alla.
