Talking about what got him interested in the subject, Balaji said, “The inspiration is the timing, the society that we live in today. After my last film LKG, I had no idea what I wanted to do next. I was promoting the film before its release and suddenly one random day I was reading something in the paper and then I thought I wanted to do a film like PK, OMG for my next film. So, a film with a message in it but very relevant to the time we live in. When I wanted to make something like PK, I approached Rajkumar Hirani sir for the rights and moneywise it did not work out. That's the time I thought we have to come out with our own story. Inspiration is just the place, the time we live in.”

Mookuthi Amman marks the directorial debut of RJ Balaji. He is a well known RJ and actor in Tamil cinema. The film also features veteran actress Urvashi. Mookuthi Amman is scheduled to release on November 14 on Disney+Hotstar.
