Commenting on the association, Menon says, "We are delighted to be working with INE and the Hinduja Group for the Hindi remake of Vinnaithandi Varuvaayaa. It has been a revelation working with AR Rahman on the original film and we plan to re-create the same magic in the Hindi remake."

INE is looking to develop and produce films with talented filmmakers and producers in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi and it is an honour to be associated with a talent like Gautham Menon and AR Rahman in the first project itself. We look forward to working with the original producers, Gautham and Elred Kumar, on other projects as well."
