Mani Ratnam has also revealed the names of the crew members in the project such as AR Rahman for music, Sreekar Prasad for editing, Ravi Varman for cinematography, Thotta Tharani for production design, Jeyamohan for dialogues, Eka Lakhani for costumes, Vikram Gaikwad for makeup, master Brinda for choreography and so on. However, lyricist Vairamuthu who was touted to be part of the film, has not been mentioned. There is a lot of speculation that he has been dropped from the project after being accused of sexual harassment in the #MeToo movement.

The shooting of the film is already underway all over India, as well as parts of Thailand, and the male lead actors have all been spotted growing their hair and beards to get the right look for the film.
