Trivia:
In 2013, a Kannada remake was reported to have been planned with Upendra in the lead, but he dismissed the reports as rumours.

"O Podu" is a popular expression among college students. When Saran wanted a catchphrase for a song, Vairamuthu suggested using this term and building on it. The term was mixed with the title song, resulting in the track "O Podu", which is an item number and the title track.

Following the success and popularity of "Gemini", Saran remade the film in Telugu as "Gemeni". It is the only film Saran made in a language other than Tamil. The remake starred Venkatesh and Namitha in the lead roles, while Kalabhavan Mani and Murali reprised their roles from the Tamil version. Most of the crew members were retained. Posani Krishna Murali translated the dialogues to Telugu. The soundtrack was composed by RP Patnaik, who reused most of the tunes from the original film. Released in October 2002, the film received lukewarm response and failed to repeat the success of the original.

"Gemini" resurrected the Tamil film industry, which was experiencing difficulties after a string of box office failures. The film won three South Filmfare Awards, three International Tamil Film Awards and four Cinema Express Awards.

Early in its production, the film was entitled "Erumugham", with Ajith intended to play the lead role. However, when Ajith left the project due to having lost interest in it, the project was temporarily shelved. Saran rewrote the script and retitled the production "Gemini", and cast the new leads.
