The team began production in March 2015 without a title, and the project remained untitled until October 2015, a month before the film's release. It developed under the working title of VIP 2, and the team denied reports of it being titled Tea Kadai Raja, before settling on Thanga Magan. The first schedule involved Dhanush and Amy Jackson, with the former shaving his beard to appear as a teenager in the portions. Scenes involving Samantha portraying Dhanush's wife were shot in May 2015, with the team recreating the effect of rainy backdrop in a studio in Chennai. Amy Jackson finished work in the film in June 2015, after filming sequences alongside the other two lead actors. The film completed it's final schedule in July 2015 by canning a fight scene and montage shots, without the presence of Velraj, who had to prioritise his work as a cinematographer for another film, Paayum Puli. The director consequently denied reports that he had a fall out with the rest of the team.
