It was announced in November 2014 that P. Bharathirajaa would portray the lead role in a film titled Om. Nirmalkumar was said to be directing the film with Yuvan Shankar Raja composing the music. The title was an acronym for “Old Man”. However, due to some reasons, Nirmalkumar left the project midway with Bharathi himself handling the direction. After a brief period of inactivity, the film’s title was changed from OM to Meendum Oru Mariyathai in October 2019.
