Being the son of film director and producer Muktha Srinivasan, Sundar made his directorial debut under his father's production with Kodai Mazhai (1986).[1] Sundar had completed a course in cinematography at the American Film Institute and worked as the cinematographer for films including his father's productions Katha Nayagan (1988), Vaai Kozhuppu (1989) and Brahmachari (1992).
