The shoot of the much-anticipated film is speculated to go on for 70 days. The Thunivu star is expected to leave for Azerbaijan for the next schedule. Earlier, the crew members of the film were in for a shock when art director Milan passed away due to a heart attack. He was with the makers in Azerbaijan when the incident took place and his body was taken to Chennai the next day.
The film is touted to be a road-action drama and Ajith will reportedly perform a stylish chase sequence. The entire filming is planned to be wrapped up by the end of January 2024 and the film is aiming for a grand Diwali 2024 release.

Maiden collaboration between Ajith and Magizh Thirumeni
Magizh Thirumeni last helmed the thriller Kalaga Thalaivan. Vidaamuyarchi is the maiden collaboration between Magizh and Ajith. After Thunivu, Ajith was slated to work with Vignesh Shivan. However, the director was shelved from the project after his final script didn't appeal to the production house. Later, Magizh was brought on board.
