Trivia:
In 2010, the producer of the film PL Thenappan threatened legal action against the makers of the Hindi film, 'Housefull' for remaking scenes from the film without permission.

PL Thenappan revealed he had dubbed the film into Hindi in the late 1990s as "Mirchi Masala", but the version did not release.

The film was initially expected to be directed by KS Ravikumar who directed the successful "Avvai Shanmughi" with Kamal Haasan in the lead earlier, but he was later replaced by Singeetam Srinivasa Rao after he refused to sign the film until the FEFSI strike of 1997 had stopped.

Actresses Meena and Simran's unavailability led to Rambha being cast in a lead role. Nagma also opted against signing the film fearing that a potential clash may arise with actress Rambha, after the pair's alleged fall out on the sets of "Janakiraman".

After Soundarya's death in 2004, Kamal Haasan paid tribute by revealing that "she came forward to do the movie, when the rest of the industry was unwilling to work with me (Kamal Haasan)".
