The movie is said to be based on Jeyamohan’s short story ‘Thunaivan’. The shooting was supposed to take place in UAE however it has been now shifted to Sathyamangalam due to the pandemic. It is said that Vetrimaran has made some subtle changes in the story.
However the plan was disrupted due to Covid. With travel restrictions still in place, it is said that director Vettrimaran has made a few changes to the script. Vettrimaran will start working on ‘Vaadivasal’ starring Suriya after the completion of this project.
