Apart from Tamil, Dhoni's production banner is also in talks with multiple filmmakers and script writers to produce content across genres, including science fiction, crime drama, comedy, suspense thriller, and more.

Talking about the Tamil project, Ramesh said in a note, "From the moment I read the concept written by Sakshi, I knew it was special. The concept was fresh and had all the potential to be a fun family entertainer. I am honoured and very grateful for this opportunity to develop this really fresh concept into a feature film story and to be directing the film as well."
