In August 2011, Bharathiraja revealed that the film would be titled Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum and would have a village centric theme similar to films such as Paruthi Veeran and Subramaniyapuram. Parthiepan was signed on to play the title dual roles of father and son and subsequently completed a photo shoot for the film.

Priyamani, Parvathi Menon of Poo fame and Meenal were initially announced to play heroines, although the first two were later replaced in the film. Karthika Nair was then signed on to play the leading female role of Annakodi, more than two decades after Bharathiraja had cast her mother Radha in her debut film.

Iniya was selected to portray a character called Mallankinaru mankatha after Bharathiraja was impressed with her performance in Vaagai Sooda Vaa. Reports also suggested that Vinay, who had previously appeared in Unnale Unnale and Jayamkondaan, was signed on to play a pivotal role although Bharathiraja\\\'s managers later dismissed the claim. In a turn of events, the day before the shoot began, Parthiepan was replaced by Ameer to portray the title roles, with Parthiepan admitting he was left in the dark about the decision.
When the Mullaperiyar Dam issue precipitated, Bharathiraja suspended the shooting of the film and sent his Keralan-born heroines home until the issue had died down. The film ran into further trouble when the tussle between the producers and FEFSI created disputes between the lead actor and director. Ameer, made remarks against the producers council and backed the FEFSI, and reports suggested that a displeased Bharathiraja opted to replace him in the film with Cheran.

However Bharathiraja went on to claim that the \\\"script needed some changes\\\" which would not suit Ameer and thus signed on his own son, Manoj, to play the lead role.Iniya was also reported to have left the project due to the delay, but she denied such claims.But her role wasn\\\'t eventually incorporated in the film. Roja was selected to play the role of a wine seller and the mother of Karthika Nair. But she opted out of the film and lack of facilities was speculated to be the reason behind her decision. Renuka stepped into the shoes of Roja.
