The film will be a comedy with specks of action and thrill here and there. The director told Indian Express that he had spoken to Rajinikanth about the film and he really liked the idea behind it.

He also said that the film will essentially capture what it means to worship one of Indian cinema's biggest stars and take his fandom to a whole new level.

Selvaah returns to film direction after a gap of 19 years with this film, having directed the 1998 Golmaal film before this. He will not only direct the film, but will also play one of the fans called, Kabali Selva.
