Anirudh Ravichander will be composing the music for this film. Evandendru Ninaithai will be bankrolled by Kamal Haasan himself in the banner of Raj Kamal Films Internation (RKFI). The film is scheduled to have its theatrical release on the summer of 2021.
Earlier, several online reports had claimed that Logesh Kanakaraj has decided to release his upcoming movie Master via OTT platforms, as theaters in the country remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, Logesh Kanakaraj soon clarified that the film demands a theatrical hit, and it will be released soon after the reopening of movie halls in the country.
On the other hand, Kamal Haasan’s previous movie to hit the theaters was Vishwaroopam 2. Even though released with a huge pre-release hype, the film bombed at the box-office. Fans of Kamal Haasan believe that the actor will end his hit draught as he is now joining hands with a hitmaker like Logesh.
