Ahead of the film's release, the cast and crew met the media to talk about the film.
Speaking at the pre-release event of Thalli Pogathey, director Kannan said, "It’s been 10 years my journey started with my directorial debut Jayam Kondan, and producer Thyagarajan sir happens to be the main reason. I believe in getting good reviews like how I got in Kanden Kadhalai. Ram Prasad has been a great support for this movie. Gopuram Films Madurai Anbu has been a great support for this movie. I am associated with Kabilan movies after Thalli Pogathey. Amitash has exerted an incredible effort towards elevating the movie. Atharvaa and Anupama have been the main soul of this movie. The movie is getting released on October 14, 2021, and it will have a great impact upon audiences.”
