The makers of Navarasa released the film's teaser today (July 9) and it has received a positive response from critics and audiences alike. The anthology is directed by nine filmmakers including Gautham Menon, Vasanth, Priyadarshan, Bejoy Nambiar, Karthik Subbaraj, Arvind Swami, Karthick Naren, Rathindran Prasad, and Sarjun KM. Sharing the teaser, Netflix wrote, "Makkale, ungaloda superstars ellarum kadha Solla varanga! #Navarasa from 6th August! (sic)."
Producers Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan, in a statement, said, "We go a long way back in working together to raise funds for causes. The pandemic was staring at our face to stand up and do something. We realized our industry was the most badly hit and we felt a strong urge to do something for our own people. Navarasa was born from this strong urge to help and support the Tamil film industry. We reached out to directors, actors, and technicians in the industry with this idea. The response was a spontaneous yes from all of them. The project was executed in the thick of the pandemic, under the most difficult conditions by the different teams. Putting the utmost safety measures in place, nine films were completed. Today Navarasa is ready for the world to see."
