Bogan is a 2017 Indian Tamil-language action-thriller film written and directed by Lakshman and produced by Prabhu Deva and Ganesh. The film stars Jayam Ravi, Arvind Swamy and Hansika Motwani in the lead roles, with Akshara Gowda, Varun, Nagendra Prasad and Nassar amongst others in supporting roles. Featuring music composed by D. Imman, the film began production during March 2016 and will be released on 2 February 2017.
The makers of the film initially announced 7 October 2016 as the tentative release date of the film, but were unable to complete the film as early as they had expected. A second proposed release date of 23 December 2016 was also postponed after the makers were affected by the 2016 Indian banknote demonetisation issue. Further dates of 26 January and 9 February were also scheduled to avoid a clash with Studio Green's big budget Singam 3 (2017), but after Singam 3 was moved to 9 February, the makers of Bogan confirmed that they would release the film on 2 February 2017.
The film's soundtrack is scored by D. Imman. The audio rights of the film was acquired by Sony Music India and the complete album was released on 3 December 2016. Actor Arvind Swamy recorded a song for the film as a playback singer for the first time in his career, after having previously recited lines for songs in Iruvar (1997) and Thani Oruvan (2015). Anirudh Ravichander also recorded a song titled "Damaal Dumeel", which was released earlier than the soundtrack as a single, following the success of the song "Dandanakka" from his previous work with Imman in Lakshman's Romeo Juliet (2015). Luksimi Sivaneswaralingam from Canada and Inno Genga from the United Kingdom — both Tamil people of Sri Lankan origin — were given the opportunity by Imman to sing in the film, while established singers including Shankar Mahadevan, Shreya Ghoshal and Vijay Prakash also worked on the album.
