With initial plans of releasing the film for Pongal 2009, the film was officially launched under the title 16 on 15 October 2008 at the office of the production company, Passion Movie Makers, who are stepping into film production with this project, Radio jockey-turned-actor Shiva, who rose to fame through his appearances in Chennai 600028 (2007) and Saroja (2008), revealed that he had signed this film after Chennai 600028 even, which commenced only after the release of his second film Saroja. Darbuka Siva, a percussionist in various bands, who also worked as a radio jockey together with Shiva, was signed for an important role as was the controversial director Velu Prabhakaran. 

The first schedule of film shooting started on 3 November 2008, when scenes involving Shiva, Darbuka Siva and Madhu Shalini were shot across the East Coast Road in Tamil Nadu. Subsequently, shooting was held at various places including Chennai, Ooty and Kodaikanal. Despite being made on a low budget and featuring a relatively new cast, the film mired in development hell, with filming, which was supposed to be completed within two months, being carried on through entire 2009, and finished in January 2010 only. Following the completion, however, the film's release still got delayed further, since it also languished in post-production hell. However, noted film producer and distributor Kalaipuli S. Thanu, after watching a preview screening of the film, decided to take over the film's theatrical rights and distribute it under his V. Creations banner in entire Tamil Nadu.
