Earlier, The project started as a Hindi film in 2013. But due to out of the blue problems, the film was paused for 2 years. In early 2016 the makers made a new team of actors and crew to produce it in Tamil and the film was completed in early 2017. The film was selected to be shown at the New York LGBT Film Festival in October 2017.

In an interview Lokesh Kumar said:

I envision my debut feature as a game-changing film on homosexuality. The aim is to spread awareness on the LGBT community, which is much needed, as many parents of adults are not even aware of the existence of this community. The struggles they go through when they find out their children are homosexual or bisexual, and the pain that the children then have to endure because of lack of acceptance, all of this needs to be discussed in the public sphere.

We should respect LGBTQ community, this movie will surely help people understand the problem LGBTQ community face and we hope they live a great life without any grapple.

We hope this movie will open the eyes of people not only in India but people around the world too.
