Speaking on the occasion, Short Flix Bharanidharan said, "This film will be released on our digital platform which also has a lot of new web series, movies, shows, etc. coming soon. The reason for starting a digital platform called Short Flicks is to give opportunities to many new young creators. The film's director Jayaraj Palani had earlier directed a short film called 'Sool'. The film won many awards internationally. During a meeting with him in this regard, he narrated the story of the film 'Vaazhvu Thodangum Idam Neethane'. After hearing this story, we agreed to produce it. Because he had created this story by thinking differently without thinking normally. After that we contacted actress Neelima Esai for the production work of the film. They have made this film very well. We hope that this movie about lesbian love will be liked by all the fans."

The film's music director Darshan Kumar said, "It is difficult to release a film in the current environment. But our movie 'Vaazhvu Thodangum Idam Neethane' is releasing thanks to producer Neelima Esai for giving me the opportunity to compose music for this. Composing songs and background music for this film was very challenging. We have used many international artists for the background music. We are sure that the songs and BGM will appeal to everyone,"

Director Jayaraj Palani said, “This is my second film. First, I created a transgender-centric work called 'Shool'. This work was bought by Short Flicks and it made a huge difference in my life. After hearing the story of this film, they said OK and made it at a reasonable cost and gave it as a gift. I am working in theater in Pondicherry and one of my assistants is a homosexual and this work has been created to reflect his feelings. This film is to emphasize that homosexuals should gain the same respect and freedom just like what straight men and women get in society.''

Actor Arshad said, "I have played the role of Irfan in this movie called. If this work has evolved from a paper to a digital work, the main reason is the support given by Short Flicks. The founders of Short Flicks Digital Platform have created this story with more faith than we as artists had in it. I would first like to thank them for this.

Actress Shruti Periyaswamy said, "I liked it instantly when the director narrated the story of 'Vaazhvu Thodangum Idam Neethane' to me. Because in the modeling industry where I work there are a lot of people who are fighting hard for their advancement. At the same time, many people working in this field belong to the exclusive social group called LGBT. That's why I decided to play this role. Thanks to Short Flicks and Esai Pictures for making this film. The shooting was done continuously without any breaks. I would like to take this moment to express my gratitude to all the technicians who have worked tirelessly."

Actress Niranjana Neithiyar said, “Director Jayaraj Palani has handled the characters of Shakira and Vinoda in this movie with finesse. The director decided that I would be suitable for the role of Shakira I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone including Jayaraj Palani. The release of this movie should be well received by the people and should motivate more movies like this. And I want to be a role model for this society that operates differently from conventional societal practice. ''

Producer and actress Neelima Esai said, “The film was made on a micro budget. Baranidharan and Senthilkumar from Short Flicks got introduced through a friend while working on the TV series 'Aranmanaikkili'.
