While playing the role of a married woman, Sridevi was actually 13 years of age. In the film, the actor starred alongside legends Kamal Haasan who was already an established actor and then-newcomer Rajinikanth. An interesting fact about the film is that Sridevi played the role of Rajini’s stepmother when she was just a teen.
