Apart from Vijay, Beast also stars Pooja Hegde, with Yogi Babu, Shine Tom Chacko, VTV Ganesh and Aparna Das in supporting roles. It is directed by Nelson Dilipkumar and is produced by Sun Pictures.
Earlier in an interview, A R Murugadoss confirmed that he was directing Thalapathy 65, now called Beast. This would have marked his fourth film with Vijay after Thupakki, Kaithi and Sarkar. But apparently due to creative differences with Vijay and Sun Pictures, Murugadoss exited the film. Nelson was suggested to Vijay by composer Aniruddh who also replaced Thaman in the film.
Principal photography began in March this year in Georgia. Later it had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. The shoot of the film is expected to resume in July.
