Naane Varuven will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Yuvan and Selvaraghavan have worked together in several memorable films including 7G Rainbow Colony and Pudhupettai.

The film will have cinematography by Aravind Krishna, another close collaborator of Selvaraghavan.  

Recently, Dhanush announced that he will also work with Selvaraghavan for the second instalment of Aayirathil Oruvan. Announcing Aayirathil Oruvan 2, Dhanush tweeted on January 1: "A magnum opus! The pre-production alone will take us a year. But a dream film from the master Selvaraghavan. The wait will be long. But we will give our best to make it all worth it. AO2...The Prince returns in 2024."

Dhanush, who was last seen on screen in the Tamil action-comedy Pataas, has a busy line-up of projects in his kitty. The actor has joined the cast of Netflix's upcoming action thriller The Gray Man.
