Production[change | change source]
Following the success of Kanchana 2 (2015), Raghava Lawrence said that more movies in the horror comedy series would continue to be made. In August 2015, he announced a movie titled Naaga, which he would direct himself. The movie was widely reported to be the fourth movie in the Muni series. He talked to Jyothika about playing an important role in the movie, but the movie did not progress. He moved on to work on two other movies, Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva (2017) and Shivalinga (2017).
Raghava Lawrence revived the project in August 2017 and revealed he was finishing the script. The regular supporting cast of Kovai Sarala, Manobala, Sriman and Devadarshini were retained. Sun Pictures, who had previously produced one of Tamil cinema's biggest blockbusters with Enthiran (2010), agreed to produce their movie. This was their second production. In late September, the following actresses were added to the project: Oviya, following her popularity on the Tamil reality show Bigg Boss, Vedhika and newcomer Nikki Tamboli.
The shoot of the movie began in Chennai during the first week of October 2017. Nivetha Joseph was the costume designer for this movie.
