Trivia:
Script Writer Ranji Panikkar also had appeared in a cameo role in this film.

The performance of Narendra Prasad was highly appreciated. he also grabbed many awards for the best villain.

The huge success of Ekalavyan made Suresh Gopi a superstar along with Mammooty and Mohanlal.

Shaji Kailas, later in an interview had revealed that he had plans of casting Mammooty as the hero in the film. Suresh Gopi was supposed to play the role of Sarath Chandran. But when Renji Panicker, the script writer, approached Mammooty to explain the script, Mammooty's response was not positive. So Suresh Gopi was cast as the hero instead.
