On 11 December 2022, Nutmeg Productions officially announced their third production venture, which would be helmed by Sethum Aayiram Pon (2019) director Anand Ravichandran. The project would feature G. V. Prakash Kumar and Aishwarya Rajesh in the lead role, pairing opposite each other in the film, in their maiden pairing. The technical crew consisting of Prakash (as the music composer), cinematographer Jagadeesh Sundaramoorthy and editor Kripakaran was revealed along with the official stills of the muhurat puja held the same day in Chennai. The film’s official title, Dear, was announced on 4 May 2023.

On the similarities of the storyline between Dear and Good Night, Anand stated “I know Manikandan, who’s playing the hero in that film, through a common friend. Before we went to shoot, we sat down and spoke. Except for the fact that the films are about snoring, they are vastly different in terms of treatment. Ours is more commercial, and even visually, the treatment is different.” According to Anand, most of the film was shot with sync sound; as he found it too difficult to recreate “the beauty of drama” through dubbing.On 5 April 2024, with the release of the film’s trailer, Kripakaran was revealed to have been replaced by Rukesh due to reasons unknown.


Principal photography began with the first schedule on 11 December 2022.After being predominantly shot in Chennai, principal photography wrapped on 1 August 2023 with a cake-cutting celebration.


Dear was theatrically released on 11 April 2024. The post-theatrical streaming rights of the film were bought by Netflix.The film had its digital premiere on the streaming platform from 28 April 2024.
