Because this novel gained so much popularity, the film production for this movie was planned by established actors and directors from the film fraternity. But this novel did not materialize due to many reasons like, Mani Ratnan tried to adapt the novel (after a failed attempt by M.G. Ramchandran in the late 1950s) in the mid 1990s and early 2010s but was unsuccessful. This film is the Dream Project for Ratnam, he revived the adaptation in Jan 2019 under the banner of Lyca Productions.

After the several changes in the cast and crew this film was brought to the production stage again in mid- December and this film was completed shooting within September 2021 with the mishappenings of production being halted twice due to Covid pandemic. This film is scheduled to be released on 30th September 2022. This film was shot at different places in India, with some shots being completed in Thailand.
