According to Indian Express, the film is based on the life of Air Deccan founder Captain GR Gopinath. Jackie Shroff, Karunas, Paresh Rawal and Mohan Babu will also be seen in pivotal roles.

Music director and actor GV Prakash has composed the music for the film. Greg Powell, best known for his work in films such as Skyfall and Bourne Ultimatum, has served as the action director.  The project is bankrolled by Suriya’s banner, 2D Entertainment and Rajsekar Karpoorasundarapandian, in association with Guneet Monga of Sikhya Entertainment.

Suriya's last two releases, Selvaraghavan’s NGK and KV Anand’s Kaappaan, did not fare well at the box-office. He also has a film with Viswasam fame director Siruthai Siva in the pipeline, which is scheduled to take off next year, and will be produced by Studio Green.
