Alaipayuthey – Trivias

23 Apr

The main plot of Alaipyuthey is “Secret Marriage”. If a couple gets married secretly and stays at their respective houses, ppl use to say they get married in Alaipayuthey style. But this is not the first movie to show this concept. Thoongadha Kannendru Onru portrayed this in the early 80s that was directed by R.Sundara Rajan with Mohan and Ambika as the lead pair.

Singer Vasundhara Das was first chosen by Mani Ratnam to play the role of Shakti. Thank God, it didn’t happen. Else I would haven’t been writing this post.

Shalini got married to Ajith after 10 days of Alaipayuthey’s release (On 24th Apr 2000). After 10 days of their marriage Kandukondain Kandukondain got released (4th May 2000).

Karthik Kumar says that he’s getting his M.D. at Princeton while in reality Princeton doesn’t have a Med School

Alaipayuthey bagged the Filmfare awards for the Best Music Director, Best Singer Male (Hariharan), Best Female Singer (Sadhana Sargam), Best Cinematographer (P.C.Sreeram), Best Editor (Sreekar Prasad), Best Debut Actor (Madhavan),
