The film which was untitled till yesterday got christened as Nimir which was revealed by veteran director J Mahendran who is also doing an important role in the film. Ekambaram is helming the cinematography and music is by Adhilesh Loknath and Darbuka Shiva. The film has been shot predominantly in Thenkasi, and also in Dubai.
About bringing in J Mahendran into his film, Priyadarshan says, “I am a great fan of Mahendran sir, who is doing a pivotal role in Nimir. I have watched all his films and back then I wanted to join him as an assistant, but unfortunately, I could not. I am happy that I could get him on board to play the role of Udhay’s dad. He is a photographer in the movie who is also a dreamer. I asked him to suggest a title and he immediately said ‘Nimir’, which goes well with the theme of the film.”
