Trivia:
Actress Deepika Padukone who comes from a well-known sports family, and leads a very active lifestyle, loves to do her own stunts. She did extensive rehearsals for her one 10-minute stunt in this movie, that was choreographed by Peter Hein in the same way he would've done for any male hero, without any concession for gender. The sequence required powerful acrobatic action, putting Deepika through continuous and swift movement through various locations at lightning speed. This action sequence received high praise from audiences and critics alike, becoming one of the highlights of the movie.

One of the highlights of this movie is a special Rudra Tandav, an extraordinary dance number performed by Thalaiva Rajinikanth.

Rajinikanth has lent his voice for one of the songs of this movie. He reached the recording studio and was casually informed about Soundarya and A.R. Rahman that they wanted him to croon.

This movie is the first fully CG (Computer Graphics) Stereoscopic film to release in India.

This movie has used photo-realistic performance capture technology, that is done with the actors performing with 40 cameras shooting at the same time. The technology captures the generic set of expressions that cover the basic musculature of the face. It requires a set of expressions that is very specific to the actor, such as a smirk or a smile, gestures and movements unique to the actor. The digital images are then animated to create the most spellbinding visual impact.

The 3D model of Rajinikanth in this film has been corrected by tightening his skin to make him look 25 years younger.

This film marks Deepika Padukone's debut in Tamil cinema.

This film's audio released on March 9, 2014.

The film simultaneously released in Telugu under the title 'Vikramasimha', and was dubbed in Malayalam, English, Hindi and Japanese to cater to Superstar's tremendous national and international fan following.

Using advanced graphics, 'Kochadaiiyaan' has brought back (late) comedy actor Nagesh to the screen.

Soundarya R Ashwin, the second daughter of actor Rajinikanth has made her directorial debut with this movie, and it is very special for her to be working with her father in her very first project.

For the female lead role, Anushka Shetty, Asin Thottumkal, Vidya Balan and Katrina Kaif were approached before Deepika Padukone.

In this film, they've used an advance technology 'Tron', where the animation team scanned Rajinikanth's face and made a 3D model to get the exact precision of his features, including the scar on his nose.

Aadhi could not shoot some scenes in London due to a passport delay, so his parts were shot in India and matched with the scenes he missed.
