Mumbai, Aug 7 () : Leading production and distribution giant, Fox Star Studios has raised its stakes in the Tamil film industry by entering into an alliance with well-known film producer, CV Kumar’s Thirukumaran Entertainment for two exciting projects –Mundasupatti and V. Chitram. Both the films will release in 2014.
Commenting on the partnership, C V Kumar added, “I remember many years ago, when I went to Los Angeles and saw the giant movie studios there, I decided I wanted to be a movie producer. I could never have imagined that in such few years, I would be working with a leading international studio like Fox Star Studios. It is truly a dream come true for me. I work very hard on every film and it is good to work with a partner who has an international expertise in developing, marketing and distributing films.”
Thirukumaran Entertainment, that has produced breakaway hits like Attakathi, Pizza and Soodhu Kavvum has established itself as one of the major players in the Tamil film industry in recent years. Interestingly, the production house made its debut in the Tamil film industry in 2010, a year before Fox Star Studios entered the industry in partnership with A R Murugadoss, with Engaeyum Eppothum in 2011 and later followed it up with Vathikuchi in March 2013. The Studio has two other projects Raja Rani slated for release later this year and Cukkoo, that went on floors in July 2013.
Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios said, “We are focused on increasing our presence in the Tamil film industry, as we have done in the Hindi film industry. While we have extended our successful association in Tamil with A R Murugadoss to Hindi as well, we are also increasing our footprint in the Tamil industry by partnering with C V Kumar’s Thirukumaran Entertainment. C V Kumar has proven himself as one of the market leaders who is high concept driven with budget conscious- qualities that resonate well with our brand. Together we promise highly entertaining cinema.”
