Vanakkam Chennai is Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi's debut directorial venture. The film produced by her husband Udhayanidhi's Red Giant Movies stars Shiva and Priya Anand in the lead. The film's music is by Anirudh and the album is a sort of hat-trick for the young music director as the songs have gone viral immediately after the launch.
The audio launch was held in an FM station. Actor Dhanush tweeted, "Only the 3rd album, 22 years old boy no celebrity singers, still Vanakkam Chennai trends India".
