ProductionEdit

The film is remake of the successful Telugu language film, Dhee, and originally Madhesh approached Genelia D'Souza to reprise her role in the original and pair up with Vinay.[3] She did not accept, however, and Sharmila Mandre was subsequently signed on to replace Genelia and make her debut in Tamil films.[4] In September 2010, filming of the songs were held across regions in England with scenes canned near castles in Richmond and Windsor in London. The team also shot at Bath, becoming the first Indian film to do so.[5] Other locations in England where the songs where filmed include Eastbourne near Brighton, Oxfordshire and Surrey.[6] The fight sequence was shot at London’s famous landmarks like the University of East London, the Tower Bridge, areas around the Buckingham Palace, Oxford University Aerodrome and London Airport with three cameras.[7] The film's title was changed from Thillu Mullu to Mirattal in November 2011.[8]

ReleaseEdit

The satellite rights of the film were sold to Sun TV.[9]
