ProductionAfter Mariyadhai (2009), Vikraman took a sabbatical before launching a project titled Ilamai Naatkal in 2011. The film was however shelved after the producers ran into to financial problems and is unlikely to release. He then chose to announce his return in October 2012 with a film titled Ninaithathu Yaaro featuring newcomers. Newcomer producers T. Immanuel and P. Ramesh were introduced to the director by a common friend and wanted him to direct their first venture after being impressed by his previous high profile work. Vikraman revealed that the film would take a step away from his standard themes of family sentiment and the film would be based primarily on youngsters and love. Vikraman chose a fresh cast by advertising auditions on social media and thus then picked his lead actor Rajith, who had appeared in a few Malayalam films, and Nimisha Suresh, a Bangalore based IT professional who had appeared in other regional films. Keyboard player X. Paulraj was signed on to make his debut as music composer and produced seven songs for the film which were released in July 2013. The team shot scenes in Kashmir and also shot two songs there in picturesque locations in Pahalgam, becoming the first film Tamil unit after a decade to film portions there. Iniya, Monica and Ameer play guest appearances in the film as themselves.
The film was completed but struggled to get a release until Studio 9 agreed to distribute the film and promised at least 100 screens in Tamil Nadu.
