The venture began production in 2016 with Sethu and Kannada actress and Shruthi Ramakrishnan in the lead roles. Director Krishna Sai says the film is about three IT guys: Sethu, Bala Saravanan, and Dheena from Kalakka Povathu Yaaru?, who have lost their jobs and are involved in petty theft to have a decent life. The film was shot in Chennai and Pondicherry.[3][4] Bavithra, a model anchor, was roped in to play the role of Shruthi's younger sister.[2] Nandha Saravanan, who is known for his role in Ghilli, plays an inspector who will use the three IT guys to take revenge on his own personal enemies, which will be played by Rajendran, John Vijay, and Yogi Babu.[5]

In August 2019, the team restarted promotions and renamed the film from Aalukku Paathi 50/50 to Kadhal Modhal 50/50. The third heroine was revealed to be Shreya Gupta who is paired opposite Yogi Babu in two songs.[6][1] Yogi Babu was promoted as the lead of the film due to his popularity, despite playing a supporting role.[7] He was picturized in a song titled Kolamavu Kokila, the name of the film in which he starred as the main lead, became viral.[8] Upon release, the film's name was changed to 50/50.[8]
