On talking about the whole idea of making this film, director Pawan Kumar Sharma shares, "Brina is Himachal's first film based on the subject of polyandry. I wanted to tell a folk tale that would not just be a documentary but also meaningful in the current context. This film has the message that saving girls is of utmost importance since if the number of girls decreases, these evil practices will come back. Brina or loan for marriage is one such evil practice. Buying a girl and getting her married to the eldest brother and who would also be the wife of all the brothers is a common practice in many parts of the country and abroad".
