Maharaja marks Vijay Sethupathi's 50th outing as the lead actor. The film is written and directed by Nithilan Saminathan, who has previously helmed Kurangu Bommai. Maharaja makes his second directorial outing. “I was impressed by what he has managed to do in this film. I never knew a person could act like this. It might sound like I am self-boasting. But, you will see what I am saying when you watch the film. The movie has come out beautifully," Nithilan once said about Vijay Sethupathi.

Sudhan Sundaram and Jagadish Palanisamy produce Maharaja under the Passion Studios banner. The new poster shows Vijay Sethupathi with a bloodied face as he holds a blade knife with blood-soaked hands. The trailer of the film will be dropping on Thursday evening.
