Film Nagar sources are abuzz that Boss Engira Bhaskaran will steal the thunder from much bigger films. The reason is the pairing of Nayantara and Arya both of whom have their own fans. Director Rajesh who had made his debut with Siva Manasule Shakthi said that he is getting more and more nervous as the release date approaches. He chose Arya to play a happy go lucky character while Nayantara is his classmate in a college. He said that he loved the fact that Nayantara is fluent in Tamil unlike his previous heroine who could not make sudden changes or variations in the scene as she would come prepared with her lines.
Continuing the new trend of shooting outside of Chennai the film was shot mostly in and around Kumbakonam, Trichy and Tanjore. Seeing Nayantara in Yaradi Nee Mohini is what convinced director Rajesh to cast Nayantara. He says that among all the present day actresses he finds Nayantara the best when it comes to mixing the glamorous and the homely.
