    Hariharan about Mohanlal's casting, "Panchagni was mainly Geetha's film, but when we asked Mohanlal whether he would do the film as Naseeruddin Shah was already selected, he said he would do 'any role'. The first thing I wanted was to give him a different appearance. Till then, he hadn't appeared without a moustache. So I asked him to shave it off. He immediately agreed. Panchagni went on to become a turning point in his career.".
