In April 2016, Madhavan was signed on to play the lead role, while Prakkat agreed to also direct the Tamil version. The director later opted out and A. L. Vijay was signed in June 2016 to helm the project, and agreed in principle to take up the project after the completion of his commitments on Devi (2016) and Vanamagan (2017).
