The movie was an indication of the rise of a new super star named NTR. There was huge response to the film and it went on to become a blockbuster.
This is the first combination of NTR and V.V. Vinayak. They later on paired up for Samba and Adhurs.
Keerthi Chawla, a new comer paired up with NTR in this movie. She remained as one film wonder despite getting few chances after this film.
The “thoda kottu china…” scene and NTR’s first arrival at villain’s house was one of the highlight scenes of the movie.
V.V. Vinayak first approached NTR with a love story but the actor asked him for a mass masala subject. Vinayak has then prepared the story line of Aadi in just 2 days and got it Okayed by NTR.
The movie was also remade in Tamil as Jai with Prashanth and as Mazduron Ka Daata in Hindi.
