The trailer was released during the audio launch of the film on Sunday at Chennai's Sathyam Cinemas.

Several prominent members from the film industry including Suriya, Maniratnam, Vairamuthu, KV Anand as well as the film's crew attended the event. Music composer Harris Jayaraj has worked on the film's soundtrack. There are six tracks as well as one theme song in the film.

Speaking at the audio launch, director Selvaraghavan raised concern over the Tamil cinema industry for not being open to creative films. "In the last few years, Tamil cinema has witnessed maximum number of comedy films. Today, producers are keen to invest in dark comedy and sex comedy over other genres. I feel we are going through a dark period and I wish it changes soon," Selvaraghavan told reporters on Sunday.

However, Selva expressed happiness over PVP cinema, the production house which is supporting his big budget film. "We need more producers like PVP to support different films. I'm glad that they backed my project and I'm confident that I won't let them down," he said.

"Irandam Ulagam" is all set to hit theatres in September.
