The collaboration between Arun Vijay and debutant director Siva Gnanam was announced in August 2012 and Karthika Nair was signed for the film in September 2012. The initial shoot took place in Pazhani later that month.
The first schedule of the film was held in Theni in October 2012. The climax shoot in March 2013 was scheduled to take place in a set worth 60 lakhs erected in Saidapet, Chennai but was postponed to avoid disruption to school exams. Thus the team relocated and began filming again in Pondicherry. In January 2014, film's title was changed from Deal to Vaa Deal.
Music is composed by Thaman uniting with Arun Vijay for second time after Thadaiyara Thakka.
Deal is the Greek version of Deal or No Deal. It airs on ANT1 and it broadcast in the 2006 spring. It is hosted by Costas Karistinos, who also hosts the Greek version of Fort Boyard on Star Channel. There are 22 boxes held by 22 potential contestants coming from various Greek prefectures. Each episode ultimately features one contestant.
During the first round, players answer a multiple choice question and the day's contestant is selected randomly among those who answered correctly. The monetary prizes range from €0.01 to €200,000, but only half of the prize is given to the contestant. The other half is given to a viewer that has participated in a text message contest going on during the broadcast. Usually, three of the boxes contain items of little value (such as a brick, an umbrella, or a souvlaki) Sometimes, the Banker offers a case exchange instead of cash.
A player won the top prize after refusing the offer of €45,500. The show ended in February 2008, before returning on October 2010.

Trade (also known as Chow) is a gay slang term originating from Polari and refers to the (usually) casual partner of a gay man or to the genre of such pairings. Men falling in the category of "trade" are not gay-identified. Historically the motivations may at times include a desire for emotional fulfillment and admiration, but the term often refers to a straight man who partners with a gay man for economic benefit, either through a direct cash payment or through other, more subtle means (gifts, tuition payments, etc.). Trade originally referred to casual sex partners, regardless of sexuality as many gay and bisexual men were closeted, but evolved to imply the gay partner is comparatively wealthy and the partner who is trade is economically deprived. Examples of this include wealthy Englishmen finding partners among deprived Cockneys in 1930s London; traveling men finding partners in places such as Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Bangkok, Thailand and locals picking up military personnel who are generally seen as being physically appealing and eager for extra income or benefits.
Trade was a highly successful, pioneering and influential gaynightclub started in 1990 by Laurence Malice. Trade was unlike any other club at the time as it opened from 4am until 1pm on Sundays at Turnmills, Clerkenwell Road, London. The club was touted as "the original all night bender". The door policy was firm but fair: "You don't have to be gay or a member to get in, but your attitude and look will count".
Early Years 1990 - 1995
Trade quickly grew in popularity as other clubs at the time such as Heaven, G-A-Y and The Fridge closed at around 02:00-03:00 Sunday mornings, an hour or so before Trade opened at 03.00 Therefore, clubbers were able to go straight on to the club.
At the time many guys went cruising in the parks after leaving other clubs. The name 'Trade' and the opening hours was to encourage guys to go to the club as a safer alternative.
Turnmills was the first club in the UK to be given a 24-hour "Music & Dance" licence. This was gained after Laurence Malice had for a long period of time tried to convince Mr Newman that there was a need for people to be able to party in a safe environment after 3am in the morning.
Due to this licensing advantage, the venue's role was crucial to the success of Trade.
