Reportedly, AR Murugadoss was earlier on board for Thalapathy 65 but due to the creative differences, he opted out of the project and Nelson Dilipkumar's project was approved by the Sun Pictures. The film marks the fourth collaboration between Thalapathy Vijay and Sun Pictures after Vettaikaaran, Sura and Sarkar. The music of the film will be composed by Anirudh Ravichander and the makers are targeting to release the project during the festive weekend of Pongal in 2022. On the other hand, Nelson is waiting for the release of his venture Doctor, which stars Sivakarthikeyan in the lead role. It marks the Kollywood debut of Priyanka Mohan, who was seen in Nani's Tollywood film Gang Leader. Talking about the film, director Nelson Dilipkumar earlier said, “It is an action comedy; one half of the film will take place in Chennai and the other half will be set in Goa. The reason we titled it Doctor is because the film has elements that are related to doctors. Siva will sport a new look and has knocked off some kilos, too.” The film is jointly produced by KJR Studios and Sivakarthikeyan Productions and was scheduled to hit the screens in May but got delayed due to the second wave of COVID-19.
