A 45 days' shooting schedule took place at Karaikudi, where Vikram, Jyothika and Vadivelu took part. A song sequence was also picturised on Vikram and Chaya Singh who's been roped in to do the single dance number. Fifty dancers took part in the dance number choreographed by Dinesh. The dance picturisation took six days to be completed.
Vivek was originally a part of the cast but fell out with the director and was subsequently replaced by Vadivelu in the film.
After the success of "Saamy", Hari decided to renew the collaboration with Vikram for second time with "Arul". Jyothika was selected as heroine pairing with Vikram for second time after "Dhool".
