Director Santhosh P Jayakumar shot to fame with the adult comedy Hara Hara Mahadevaki, starring Gautham Karthik and Nikki Galrani in the lead. Being the first of its kind movie, it was widely talked about and gave the director very good popularity. Following this, he made Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu, another adult comedy which was also well received by the youth. Despite not playing for family or child audiences, director Santhosh has a very good following amongst the youth. After these 2 movies, he made the romantic comedy Ghajinikanth with Arya and Sayyeshaa in the lead.
It was then reported that he would be making another clean entertainer for the Studio Green banner. However, it was later announced that the production house and the director had parted ways, following creative differences. Amidst reports that this project - Theemai Than Vellum had been shelved, we had announced that the project was indeed on and that only the production house would be different.
