This movie completed a 100 day theatrical run and was declared super hit at the box office.

Vijay has sung a song in this movie.

Vijay helped the director get the producer and Mohan Lal.

Kajal Agarwal will be playing an action-oriented role and is reuniting with Vijay again after the blockbuster Thuppakki in 2012.

The director revealed that he narrated 'Jilla's storyline to Vijay years back while he was shooting for 'Velayudham' and the actor also gave his nod to do Nesan's flick, but he did not mention when he could. Two years passed, Nesan started to lose faith, but suddenly he got a call from the actor, to start shooting soon. Despite the two year waiting period, the director was overjoyed at being given the opportunity to direct his first movie with Vijay playing the lead role.

Director Nesan, made his directorial debut with this movie, had the rare privilege to direct two top heroes in Vijay and Mohanlal on the same screen together, and that too, in his very first movie as director!
