In his YouTube channel, veteran director Bharathiraja has been recalling the interesting incidents that happened in his film career. 

Talking about his classic hit 16 Vayadhinile, Bharathiraja said: "I made the film under the budget of five lakhs. We fixed twenty-seven thousand to Kamal Haasan, nine thousand to Sridevi, and three thousand to Rajinikanth. But for some reason, I only paid 2500 to Rajinikanth and he still jovially asks me the remaining 500 rupees".

Bharathiraja said that he only booked rooms for Sridevi and Kamal Haasan so the director and Rajinikanth used to sleep in the corridor of the hotel.

During the break, Bharathiraja would buy a tender coconut for Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth, and Sridevi while others in the crew would get a vada. For transportation, the rest of the crew had one van while Rajinikanth, Kamal, and Sridevi were provided one car each.

Bharathiraja also said that he shot the entire film in Mysore.
