D. Suresh Babu, Sunitha Tati and Hyunwoo Thomas Kim are producing the movie. Regina Cassandra and Nivetha Thomas have played the lead roles in the movie helmed by the very talented director Sudheer Varma of Swamy Ra Ra fame.

The makers of the film announced the title on the occasion of actress Nivetha Thomas' birthday. It is reported that 'Saakini Daakini' has wrapped up shooting as it enters into the post-production phase. The makers are planning to release this investigative thriller before Sankranthi.

Recently, the release date poster for the film was unveiled. It sees the daredevil ladies Regina and Nivetha giving serious gaze. Like the pink tinge to the middle letters of the title, the pink light on the ladies enhances the intensity. The dressing and the getup of the actresses are very analogous. Nivetha Thomas shared the poster on her official Twitter and wrote, "vasthunnam! #SaakiniDaakini #SDonSep16th ". Check it out:
