Fox Star Studios signs a two-film deal with Tamil filmmaker

Production-distribution banner Fox Star Studios has raised its stakes in the Tamil film industry by entering into an alliance with producer C.V. Kumar’s Thirukumaran Entertainment for two exciting projects — Mundasupatti and V. Chitram .

The films are slated for release in 2014. Kumar, who has strengthened his foothold in the Tamil film world with hits such as Attakathi, Pizza and Soodhu Kavvum , said in a statement, “It’s a dream come true to work with a production giant. 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 never imagined that within such a short period of time, I would be working with Fox Star Studios. I work very hard on every film and it is good to work with a partner who has international expertise in developing, marketing and distributing films.”

Fox Star Studios’ past Tamil projects include Engaeyum Eppothum (2011) and Vathikuchi (2013). The studio has Raja Rani , slated for release later this year, and Cukkoo , which went on floors in July 2013. We are focussed on increasing our presence in the Tamil film industry, said Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios.
