In August 2020, A. R. Rahman was initially approached to compose music for the film but he did not sign the film.

Director Nag Ashwin stated that the film needed high-end technology and futuristic vehicles to be developed for the film. While they can be recreated using computer-generated imagery (CGI), Ashwin wanted them to feel “authentic and genuine”, therefore opted to build these vehicles from scratch with a dedicated team of engineers. In March 2022, Ashwin requested businessman Anand Mahindra to provide technical support to build such types of vehicles.

Instead of shooting the entire film in a single stretch, the team divided its 80–90 days of shoot into 7–8 days every month.
