Shiva was not the first Hindi film for which Ilaiyaraaja rehashed some of his 80s hits from different films. Name another such film.

Aur Ek Prem Kahani.

It had rehashed versions of "Kaatril Enthan Geetham" (Johnny), "Thumbi Vaa" (Olangal) & "Pothi Vecha Malliga Mottu" (Mann Vaasanai).

The film was Balu Mahendra's remake of his debut film Kokila (Kannada). It starred Heera (in Shobha's role), Ramesh Aravind (in Kamal Haasan's role) and Revathi.

"Thumbi Vaa" itself was a beautifully reworked version of "Sangathil Paadatha Kavidhai" (Auto Raja) for Balu Mahendra's Olangal.

I caught some glimpses of the film on TV, and it's said that it didn't have a theatrical release.
