Naan Mahaan Alla is a forthcoming Indian Tamil action-romance film written and directed by Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu fame Susindran, starring Karthi and Kajal Aggarwal in lead roles. The film, produced by K. E. Gnanavelraja and scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja, is currently in its production stage and expected to release in early 2010.
After his first feature film Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu, released in February 2009, became a success, receiving much critical acclaim as well, director Susindran started to work on the script for his next film. He was ready with the script by August 2009, revealing details about the project. While his previous film was based on sporting incidents in a rural background, this film was said to be a "total city subject", shot entirely in Chennai. An action family entertainer, the film would deal about problems in city life, according to Susindran. On 19 August 2009, it was then announced, that the film was titled Naan Mahaan Alla and would be produced by K. E. Gnanavelraja under the banner of Studio Green, who earlier had produced Surya's Sillunu Oru Kadhal and the award-winning Paruthiveeran by Ameer Sultan, which incidentally also starred Karthi in the lead role.
While Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu, Susindran's first feature film, starred mostly newcomers, he chose Karthi for the lead role in the film as he felt, that Karthi has an "innocence in his face" that was needed for this role and that he could "convey charm, innocence and being jolly at the same time". For the lead female role, Kajal Aggarwal, who had appeared in Tamil films as Pazhani, Saroja and Modhi Vilayadu, was roped in, who Susindran had chosen, after having seen her performances in the Telugu films Chandamama and Magadheera and felt, that her "cute expressions" were what he needed for that character. While Karthi's character is a middle class bank employee, Aggarwal would play an employee in a mobile phone company.
The shooting commenced on 4 September 2009 and will be held in various Indian cities as Chennai, Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam. In mid-September, the shooting was reportedly being carried along the East Coast Road (ECR) near Chennai  and later in the environs of the highways near Poonamallee in Chennai.
