Directed by Raju Murugan, Japan is bankrolled by Dream Warrior Pictures. Karthi said that the film while being "so grounded" at the same time "flamboyance and the cockiness" of his role made him interested in the Japan. He also mentioned, “I’ve liked his earlier two films ‘Cuckoo’ and ‘Joker’ and his understanding of local community, the culture here, it’s so beautiful.”

Karthi also opened about his next film which will be directed by Nalan Kumarasamy. Revealing it to be a fantasy action entertainer, the 50% of shoot has been completed. He also has a film with Prem Kumar alongside Arvind Swami, which will be a coming of age drama.
