In a much-anticipated announcement, Sathya Jyothi Films revealed their collaboration with director Siva and actor Ajith Kumar through their official Twitter handle in late November 2017. This announcement put an end to months of speculation surrounding Ajith Kumar’s next project. Shortly thereafter, in early February 2018, Nayanthara was confirmed as the lead actress for the film, adding to the excitement surrounding the project.
Originally scheduled to commence on 23 March 2018, the principal photography for the film faced significant delays due to the Tamil Film Producers Council’s strike. However, production eventually kicked off on 7 May in Hyderabad.
The soundtrack album for the film, marking the first collaboration between D. Imman, Ajith Kumar, and Siva, was composed by D. Imman. It showcased their creative synergy. However, it is worth noting that the background music from the film was later replicated for the Bollywood movie Marjaavaan, directed by Milap Milan Zaveri and featuring Sidharth Malhotra.
Viswasam was released on 10 January 2019, coinciding with the occasion of the Thai Pongal festival along with Rajinikanth starrer Petta.
