The film will be a musical, written by Himanshu Sharma who has previously written Zero, Ranjhanaa, Tanu Weds Manu Returns and more. Dhanush and Aanand L Rai have worked together earlier in Raanjhanaa.

According to a report, Akshay said, “I am thrilled to be working with Aanand L Rai, as I have always admired the way he has showcased his stories. When he narrated the film to me, I said ‘yes’ within 10 minutes. It is a challenging character to play, but at the same time, it is such a special role that my heart just couldn’t say ‘no’ to it. I will remember it for the rest of my life.”
