Suriya was mighty impressed with Sudha's Irudhi Suttru and expressed interest to collaborate. In early 2017, Sudha pitched a story idea which Suriya really liked. Since he was busy with Singam 3 and Thaana Serntha Kootam, he had to postpone the project.
Sudha Kongara is popular for her works in Tamil, Telugu, and Bollywood. She debuted as a screenwriter for the Indian-English film Mitr, My Friend, directed by actor Revathi which was selected as the Best English Film of the year award at the 49th National Film Awards.
