A film that has created a tremendous buzz since it was announced earlier this year, Dhanush's Naane Varuven kicked off production in October. The film marks the reunion of the two-time National Award-winning actor with his brother and ace filmmaker Selvaraghavan after nearly a decade when they last worked in Mayakkam Enna. With production on Naane Varuven progressing at a brisk pace for a while now, the film's cinematographer Yamini Yagnamurthy took to social media on Saturday to inform that she has left the project "due to unavoidable reasons." She wrote, "It was a great experience and learning working with director @selvaraghavan and the creative team of #naanevaruven. Due to unavoidable reasons I have decided to step out of the project. Best wishes to the team! Thanks for the support". Below is her tweet:

The news of Yamini Yagnamurthy exiting Naane Varuven has come as a bit of a shock to some considering she had also worked in the upcoming action drama film, Saani Kaayidham, which has Selvaraghavan making his acting debut alongside National Award-winning actress Keerthy Suresh under Rocky fame Arun Matheswaran's direction. A few days back, Selvaraghavan shared an exciting update that he was going to use handheld shots for Naane Varuven, while also posting photos of himself with the camera from the film's shooting spot. He had also revealed that he was using handheld shots after a gap of 18 years when he last did the same during the shooting of Pudhupettai. .
Naane Varuven was initially announced to be a reunion for Dhanush, Selvaraghavan, composer Yuvan Shankar Raja and cinematographer Arvind Krishna. However, the film was launched with Yamini Yagnamurthy, who has now exited, with fans now awaiting to hear from the team on who will be boarding the venture for the camera duties next. Being produced by blockbuster producer Kalaipuli S. Thanu's V Creations banner, Naane Varuven has Dhanush cast opposite Bigil and Meyaadha Maan fame Indhuja Ravichandran and is expected to be a strongly content-driven film.
