Thug Life will also see veteran actor Nasser in a pivotal role, while Abhirami who was last paired with Kamal Haasan in the blockbuster Virumaandi (2004), will also be making a major appearance. The film boasts of a highly-talented technical team starting with cinematographer Ravi K. Chandran, editor A. Sreekar Prasad, stunt directors Anbariv, production designer Sharmistha Roy, costume designers Amritha Ram and Eka Lakhani, make-up artist Ranjith Ambady, and publicity designer Gopi Prasannaa.
