Vijay filmed the movie using a Canon 5D that he had rented due to having a budget of only ₹250,000. He did not begin filming until four years after he had finished the movie's script, as it took him a while to find a cast and crew that he felt could help him make the movie. Casting took almost two years to complete and Vijay eventually chose actress Supriya Aysola to perform in the film's lead role. Of the film's inspiration, Vijay has stated that he was inspired from a late-night television show that dealt with "extreme psycho-sexual disorders".
