Television actress Deepa Venkat dubbed the voice of the female lead in the movie.

Initially, Yuvan Shankar Raja replaced G. V. Prakash Kumar as music composer in the film, with the latter reporting it was due to "money and time issues". However, in a sensational turn, G. V. Prakash Kumar was assigned again as composer, after Yuvan Shankar Raja moved out of the project as he was busy with other commitments and could not give priority to Selvaraghavan, who was in rush to complete the film and move on to his next project, 'Vishwaroopam'.

The story of the film is based on the book 'A Beautiful Mind', that was written by a German-born American journalist Sylvia Nasar, which also inspired and resembled the hollywood movie, 'A Beautiful Mind' (2001).
