Talking about Agra in an interview to Mid-day Behl said, "Agra is a story of a family and an exploration of space in an increasingly crowded world. It follows the quest for a sexual odyssey of an individual. Having a production house like Yoodlee Films come on-board gives me confidence in their commitment to create meaningful cinema."
Behl also said that Rahul has a lot of untapped potential and understood the intricacies of the role well. He added that in Rahul, he found a protagonist who is willing to take the plunge [and explore] this storyline.
The cast also includes Priyanka Bose, Mohit Agarwal, Ruhani Sharma, Vibha Chibber, Sonal Jha and Aanchal Goswami.
Kanu has previously worked as the co-writer of the critically acclaimed film Love Sex Aur Dhokha. His short film Binnu Ka Sapna was premiered at the prestigious Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival in France.
