Sidhique who directed the original has directed the Tamil version too. Ramesh Khanna was selected to play the role which was enacted by Srinivasan in original. First Jyothika was signed, with Suvalakshmi to play the lead actresses in the film but soon Simran replaced Jothika. Both Simran and Suvalakshmi also then too backed out, and were replaced by Devayani and new girl Vijayalakshmi from Mysore. Shooting was held in a fast pace on location in Ooty, Pollachi, Pazhani and Udumalaipettai.
