Also starring Atharvaa, Mishti, John Vijay and MS Bhaskar in prominent roles, the film is being directed by Badri Venkatesh and according to him, Anaika plays a prostitute.

"It is a pivotal role in the script and not many actresses readily agree to playing a bold role. But Anaika wanted to take it up as soon as she heard the story narration. I feel it is brave on her part to accept this role," Badri told Times of India.
Since Anaika plays a sex worker, her looks in the film will be glamorous, it is said.
Much like the famed 'Kattipudi' song from Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Kushi, Semma Botha Aagatha too, will have a tantalizing song, for which Anaika will shake a leg.
"It is a song titled 'Gaali Pannaren'. It is only one-and-a-half minutes long, but will keep repeating in her (Anaika's) portions. Yuvan has recorded the song with actress Remya Nambeesan," the director has said.
The shooting of Semma Botha Aagatha will be wrapped up in the next few days and the film is expected to hit the screen soon.
"We have also shot the talkie portions. Only two songs are left to be shot," Badri Venkatesh told the leading daily.
Semma Botha Aagatha, which caught the attention of many with its intriguing first look poster, is being bankrolled by Atharvaa himself under his home production banner Kickass Entertainment.
While Gopi Amarnath is spearheading the cinematography, Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing the tunes for the film.
Director Badri Venkatesh and Atharvaa are joining hands for the second time as the former had introduced Atharvaa to the world of cinema through Baana Kaathadi.
