In a particular scene Santhanam was required to carry water cans to houses in a cycle. The art department had placed filled cans instead of empty cans Santhanam drove the cycle in high speed in order to complete the scene before the public thronging the field. Unfortunately unable to bear the weight, the front tyre of the cycle lifted up and hit Santhanam's face. He had shout for the help of spot boys who immediately turned up to hold the cycle and saved Santhanam from falling on the floor.
