One of the promises that Manikam makes to his dying father is to get a Medical College seat for his younger sister without letting anyone know about Manikam's secret identity, but he uses his identity to threaten the principal for the same reason which eventually breaks the promise.

When Manikkam is brutally beaten up, blood stains on his white vest appear and disappear between the shots.

The film's Muhurat shot took place at AVM Studios at the venue which later came to be known as the Rajni Pillaiyar Temple.

Actress Nagma was the original choice for the lead role after Krissna was impressed with her performance in Kadhalan.

After the release of "Padayappa", Rajinikanth and Suresh Krissna had discussed the possibility of making a sequel to "Baashha" which was scrapped as Rajinikanth stated that he does not believe that sequels work in Indian Cinema.

The film borrows background score used by Brad Fiedel in the 'Terminator' series.

The film is a revised adaptation of Amitabh Bachchan starrer "Hum" and it took inspiration from Mammootty starrer "Samrajyam".

The film completed 368-day run at the box office.

Originally, producer Prasad Rao had bought the remake and dubbing rights with Amitabh Bachchan, but the project never took off.

For his exemplary performance in the film, Rajinikanth had won The Filmfans Association Award and Cinema Express Award for the Best Actor.

This film was later remade in Kannada as "Kotigobba" starring Vishnuvardhan and Priyanka Upendra in the lead.
