In January 2015, Jiiva signed on to appear in a venture directed by Deekay and produced by Elred Kumar, who had made Yaamirukka Bayamey (2014). Keerthy Suresh and Nikki Galrani were signed to portray further leading roles, while the director revealed that Bobby Simha would make an extended guest appearance.

The film’s first look was released in June 2015, with Jiiva revealed to be playing a chef. Despite the initial photo shoot featuring the lead actors, the project became delayed and the shoot failed to take off throughout 2015.
