Joshua Imai Pol Kaakha is an upcoming action thriller directed by Gautham Menon. The film is Produced by Ishari K Ganesh under his Vels Film International banner. Joshua Imai Pol Kaakha features Varun and Raahei in the lead roles. Director Gautham Menon agreed terms to work on a film produced by Ishari K Ganesh of Vels Film International during July 2019, following the producer's sudden intervention to relieve Menon from financial constraints that he faced during the making of Enai Noki Paayum Thota. In return, Menon agreed to make a film starring Ganesh's nephew, Varun, in the lead role. Media reports initially suggested that the film would be based on the script of Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru, which was originally planned with Vijay in 2011, but Menon denied this and claimed it was a separate story.  
It was later informed that Gautham Menon had used the script that he made for Arun Vijay after finishing Yennai Arindhaal. Arun Vijay had earlier trained for the project in Paris with stunt director Yannick Ben, but the film was put on hold in mid-2017 after Menon encountered financial constraints. But no official announcement has been made to confirm this speculation. Featuring music composed by Karthik, Joshua narrates the tale of a bodyguard who has to look after and protect a high-profile woman who comes to Chennai from London. To prepare for his role, Varun trained with Yannick Ben and his team of stunt directors and parkour experts in Paris during mid-2019. Debutant actress Raahei was also cast in the film as a high net-worth individual, who is protected by Varun's character. By November 2019, fifty percent of the film was completed through a schedule in Chennai. The makers then prepared to shoot scenes in the UK and the USA, while aiming for a February 2020 release. However, filming has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 
Darbuka Siva was initially speculated to compose tunes for the film, in fact, the teaser had music by Darbuka Siva but he was later replaced by singer Karthik. One song, "Hey Love", was to have been released on 29 February 2020 as a single which was composed by Karthik. Now Gautham Menon has shared a sneak peek of the second track - “We are getting into that musical zone on the film #JOSHUA with a new song #NaanUnJoshua featuring composer @singer_karthik. Full song releasing On July 16th!”
