Sri Thenandal Films company has acquired the distribution rights of Idhu Namma Aalu. The movie gets 'U' certificate from the censor board and movie is scheduled to release on May 27th, 2016.


Pandiraj had written a love story and approached Silambarasan to play the lead role in the film, after his friend 'Poster' Nandakumar helped set up a meeting. 

Reports of a collaboration between Silambarasan and Pandiraj first surfaced in the media during April 2013, and subsequently it was revealed that the pair would work on a romantic film to be produced by T. Rajender under Silambarasan's home production studio.

Kuralarasan, Rajender's second son and Silambarasan's younger brother, was signed by Rajendar to make his debut as the film's music composer during July 2013.

Silambarasan began filming his portions from October 2013 alongside Soori in Urapakkam. The first schedule was completed without a lead actress.

Stalin had convinced the actress of that film, Nayantara, to meet Pandiraj. Subsequently, Nayantara signed on to be a part of the film during November 2013, agreeing to work with Silambarasan for the first time since their break-up, with the news creating increased hype around the project.

By April 2014, the film was seventy percent complete. Pandiraj began casting for a second lead actress during the middle of 2014 and held discussions with Bindu Madhavi and Taapsee Pannu, before finalising on Andrea Jeremiah.

Actor Jai also shot for the film, and took part in a single day's shoot with Silambarasan, Nayanthara and Andrea. The project first ran into production troubles during July 2014, when Silambarasan had changed his hairstyle in between schedule breaks, leaving Pandiraj unhappy. Silambarasan subsequently disclosed to the media that Idhu Namma Aalu was his production and that others should not question his involvement in the project.
