Talking about the film’s title, director Priyadharshan had said earlier, “Right from the days I started my direction career I have been a huge fan of Director Mahendran sir. I even wanted to work as his assistant but didn’t get that opportunity. I am so privileged and proud that he has done an essential character in ‘Nimir’. To direct a legend whom you have always looked up to is a matter of pride. It was Mahendran sir who suggested me the title ‘Nimir’ after listening to the story. We couldn’t have come up with a more suitable title than this for this story. Mahendran sir plays the protagonist’s father, and this relationship is the core of this story. The movie has come out well, and we all are delighted with the outcome.” (ALSO READ: Was surprised that Mahendran refused more acting opportunities after ‘Theri’: Udhayanidhi Stalin)
