The film marks the maiden collaboration of Vikram Kumar and Nani. It also stars veteran actor Lakshmi, Saranya Ponvannan, Vennela Kishore, Priyanka Arul Mohan and Kartikeya Gummakonda among others.

Talking about the film, Nani had told Hindustan Times: “It’s the most fun I had shooting for a project. This is not a regular comic caper but it’s made in such a way that it has the thrills as well as lot of scope for humour. Vikram and I have been thinking of working together for a while and I’m glad it finally happened.”

Produced by Mythri Movie Makers, the film has music by Anirudh Ravichander. This is Anirudh’s second outing with Nani after Jersey.

In Hindustan Times review, Gang Leader was described as: “Despite reeking of a predictable screenplay, what really makes Gang Leader tick is its casting and overall treatment which makes the jokes work more effectively than the revenge angle.”

Meanwhile, talks have been initiated for Gang Leader remake in Tamil and Hindi. Production houses have already started inquiring for remake rights.
