Continuity
When Akilan rings up the Bihari gang leader's mobile, the battery is full. When he meets Dinesh (security), the battery is very low and then suddenly changes to full again.

Errors in Geography
When the lead actors are said to travel to Ukraine, it is obvious that the shooting actually took place in Albania.
Trivia:
Several actresses were considered including Taapsee Pannu, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Sharma, with Kajal Aggarwal eventually grabbing the role of the lead female actor.

Initially, Prakash Raj was supposed to play the negative role in this film, but after he pulled out, Sachin Khedekar who played Amala Paul's father in 'Deiva Thirumagal' replaced him.

This was the first Indian film to adopt performance capture technology for some of the action scenes.

There are 5000 shots in the movie , where lead actor Suriya is seen as conjoined twins.

To fulfil the requirements of this movie, the crew needed identical twin kids. In order to get the kids in good mood, the entire crew were forced to wait for 2 whole days to shoot a clip, that would appear for just 6 seconds in the movie.

For the Telugu dubbing of this movie, actor Suriya dubbed for himself for the first time in his career.

Some doctors were consulted during the shoot in order to learn about the medical intricacies and psychology concerned with conjoined twins.

This movie had 1 million roles of negatives, which is said to be a record, as most movies would only have as many as 300000 to 500000 negative roles.

A complex 10 minutes fight scene was filmed at MGM, Chennai. It took nearly 25 days to complete the fight scene.
