Jayakumar for a comedy film starring Arya and Sayyeshaa in the lead roles.Titled Ghajinikanth, the film was revealed to be a remake of the Telugu film Bhale Bhale Magadivoy (2015), and the first look poster had Arya in an ethnic attire resembling a character portrayed by Rajinikanth in the 1988 film, Dharmathin Thalaivan. The title is a portmanteau of the words “Ghajini” and “Rajinikanth”. The shoot began with a song sequence shot in Thailand before the team completed scenes in Chennai.
