During a stage of production, Prabhudeva, Maheshwari and the entire crew including Sundar C had landed in South Africa. Rambha had not boarded the plane with them as planned. Na.Ir.Na.Ir unit became nervous, not knowing what to do, as the shooting time and spot that they had reserved in Sun City was getting wasted. After waiting for a long time, they went ahead and had Maheshwari put on Rambha's costumes and picturized the song with her and Prabhudeva. Rambha, who arrived two days later, got wild and furious that Sundar and company would picturize the song without her. She went back to Chennai almost three days before the Na.Ir.Na.Ir unit and got ready to shoot for Kaathala Kaathala instead.
Sundar and others who were angry and disappointed with Rambha's behavior filed complaints with film organizations. Meanwhile, more developments came about once Rambha left the film. It appeared that the director's wife, Kushboo had strongly thrown in a recommendation for Simran to grab the role that Rambha had trashed, but Meena entered the picture from somewhere, all of a sudden. The fact was that Meena gave up her Kaathala Kaathala role for Rambha and Soundarya, while Rambha gave up her Na. Ir. Na. Ir role for Meena. On a side note to the entire matter, Simran announced that she gave up her chances to star in both Kaathala Kaathala and Naam Iruvar Namakku Iruvar, because she did not want to pack herself with call sheet troubles and not be able to act in that she had already committed to.
This is the first movie where Meena appears in a swim suit
