Netflix's Navarasa is an anthology consisting of nine films based on nine human emotions. Navarasa is jointly produced by Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan. The film is directed by nine filmmakers. Bejoy Nambiar, who directed films like Shaitaan and David has directed one of the segments in Navarasa. In his portion, Vijay Sethupathi has shared screen space with Prakash Raj and Revathi.
In a statement, Bejoy said, "Markand Deshpande once told me to be careful about working with your idols. Since you have grown up watching your idols and working with them sometimes ruins the illusion of greatness, it is best to avoid them. I've been fortunate in not experiencing that since I've always enjoyed watching the people I've worked with in my youth. Having the opportunity to work with Mani Sir is a privilege.”
Working With Vijay Sethupathi, Bejoy said, "For several scenes, Vijay Sethupathi and I sat together and rewrote the dialogues. It surprises me how much actors invest in their performances. His enhancements have improved many scenes. A script for Revathi Mam's last monologue was written by Vijay Sethupathi. His contribution to the script was credited in the film. In making this in-depth film, I was fortunate to find an incredible cast and a dedicated cast that truly collaborated with me.”
