As per the interviews of the director of Maamannan, Mari Selvaraj (the director of the film) has revealed some unknown facts about it. He said that the film was always in his mind, and he was waiting for the correct time to pen down his thoughts. It has been stated by him that it is an unusual film, and he was quite sceptical about it at the beginning. He did not know if the film would work for the actors, but when Udhayanidhi Stalin agreed to work on it, his thoughts about Maamannan took a 180° turn.
Selvaraj stated in his interview that Maamannan is based on a true story that happened. The incident happened exactly 15 days after the release of the first film, Paraiyerum Peruman, of Selevaraj.
