Originally spelled "Kochadaiyaan", the film was renamed (with an extra "i") for numerological reasons

The film will be simultaneously released in Telugu under the title "Vikrama Simha", and dubbed in Malayalam English, Hindi and Japanese.

Through the use of 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, who was slated to pair with Rajinikanth in "Rana", took up the offer in February 2012, marking her debut in Tamil cinema. This is convenient as it has been reported that "Kochadaiiyaan" is a prequel to "Rana".

In this path-breaking 3D animation movie, the team scanned his (Rajinikanth) face and made a 3D model to get the exact precision of his features, such as the scar on his nose. And then the 3D model was corrected by tightening his skin to make him look 25 years younger. This technology in the film "Tron." The youthfulness of the look was compared to the looks that Rajinikanth carried in his film "Muthu".

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