The film, initially known as SK21, is aptly titled “SK 21” as it marks Sivakarthikeyan’s 21st film in a leading role. Principal photography kicked off in May 2023, unfolding through diverse locations such as the picturesque landscapes of Kashmir, the vibrant city of Chennai, and the charming locales of Pondicherry. The artistic finesse behind the lens is brought to life by cinematographer CH Sai, while the seamless editing is orchestrated by R. Kalaivanan.

Casting speculations and leaks added to the excitement. In April 2022, there were reports about the possible inclusion of either Rashmika Mandanna or Sai Pallavi as the lead actress. The latter was officially confirmed, making this her first collaboration with Sivakarthikeyan. Additionally, the acclaimed actor Rahul Bose was unveiled as the main antagonist, adding a layer of intrigue to the narrative.
