In 2016, Vicky an assistant director of S.A. Chandrasekhar read a book on "Traffic Ramasamy" a social activist and public interest litigator. He thought it would become a wonderful film and gave the book to S.A. Chandrasekhar who also got impressed and accepted to do the role of Traffic Ramaswamy. Vicky and Chandrasekar met Ramaswamy who instantly agreed to take the film and presented two hundred rupees as his contribution for the film.
Then on consecutive meetings Chandrasekar spent time with Ramaswamy to observe his activities and mannerisms. The film shoot started in December 2017 with S.A. Chandrasekhar as lead in and around Chennai.
After the release of Kodi (film) in 2017, S.A.Chandrasekhar announced that he would play the role of a social activist in his next film titled Traffic Ramasamy directed by Vicky, a cinematographic biography of the social activist Traffic Ramaswamy. It would be produced by SAC himself. SAC said to reporters, "Traffic Ramasamy's actual image was intentionally distorted, maligned and reduced to a clown who goes on a sabotaging spree. His real identity has been deliberately kept away from the general public by politicians and officers. There is a lot more to him than you know. The heart of the story is inspirational, but it also has a lot of humour."
