In January 2015, Ragava and Vikram Prabhu announced that they would work on an action adventure film together, with Ilaiyaraaja signed on to compose the film’s music. The film was reported to be titled as Thanni Kaattu Raja, but was postponed after Vikram Prabhu prioritised other projects.
In December 2015, Ragava announced that he would instead make the action adventure film with Arya in the lead role, and that it would be set in the backdrop of a jungle. Catherine Tresa was signed on as heroine, while Yuvan Shankar Raja was soon after announced as the film’s music composer. For his role in the film, Arya gained weight and sported a muscular physique. The film began shooting in March 2016 in the forests of Kodaikanal and as mobile network coverage was hard to find, the team requested local operators to put up four communications towers. In May 2016, the film’s actual title was revealed to be Kadamban. For the shooting of the climax scene, 70 elephants were used.
