Meendum Kokila was originally launched with J Mahendran but later he was replaced with GN Rangarajan. Even Mahendran hasn’t talked about this movie in his autobiography. Nevertheless, it had a strong storyline on infidelity. Sridevi played a critically acclaimed role of a Brahmin wife that fetched her first Filmfare award for Best Actress.
Like many other songs in this series, this beautiful melody is not much talked about due to the other beautiful songs in the movie (Chinnanchiru Vayathil and Radha Radha).
Trivia: Not only Mahendran was replaced, but Deepa was also a replacment for a famous actress. It was Hindi actress Rekha who was slated to make her Kollywood debut.
