The director is well known for directing films such as Ayudham in 2008, Vairam: Fight of Justice in 2009 and Best of Luck in 2010. Speaking about his current venture, the director was quoted by the Indian Express as stating, “Kinar is a symbolic representation of the water shortage we face today.”
On roping in Revathy and Jaya Prada, he had said, “When I narrated the script, both were very excited to be part of the film. While Jaya Prada plays the role of a housewife, Revathy plays the Thirunelveli Collector. Since the film is female-oriented, we needed talented actors.”
