Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

In early 2016, Prabhu Solomon confirmed to the media that he would soon start work on a sequel to his successful 2012 film, Kumki,[1] He then delayed the project to finish his commitments to the Dhanush-starrer, Thodari (2016), while also contemplating potentially remaking Kumki into Hindi.[2][1] Following the disappointing response to Thodari, Prabhu Solomon chose to finish scripting the sequel to Kumki and registered the title Yaanai for a production for Eros International during the final quarter 2016.[3] He went on a recce to Thailand to finalise the script and hunt for locations.[4]

Prabhu Solomon confirmed in July 2017 that pre-production was almost complete and the team were waiting for the end of the monsoon season to begin the shoot of the film in Thailand. He stated that debutants would feature in the lead role, and subsequently signed Mathi, the nephew of director Linguswamy to play the male lead. Mathi's earlier film, Balaji Sakthivel's Ra Ra Rajasekhar, remains unreleased as a result of Linguswamy's financial problems. Shivani, the daughter of actors Rajasekhar and Jeevitha, was first signed to play the lead role, before she was replaced by rookie actress Adhiti Menon.[5][6] Pen India Limited took over as producers and Nivas K. Prasanna replaced D. Imman, before the start of the shoot in August 2017 in Thailand.[7][8]
