In1965 the 100th day of Ayirathil Oruvan was not celebrated due to death of students who participated in Hindi agitation. The producer of Ayirathil Oruvan B.R.Panthalu had given a publication stating the reason.


In 2014, Divya Films Chockalingam had made a tremendous effort by restoring the entire footage of Ayirathil Oruvan and re-worked with the sound effects and released the movie in over 100 centres all over Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry, Karnataka and overseas.
