On a quiet morning, on June 11 to be precise, ace producer C V Kumar entered a house in Valsaravakkam, ready to commence work for the day. Only, it was a different hat he was wearing this time — that of a director. The man who produced offbeat movies and commercial  ventures under his Thirukumaran Entertainment banner, has finally kickstarted his first directorial venture.

A puja was held on the location,  in the company of his peers and good friends from the industry including included G E Gnanavel Raja, Abinesh Elangovan, Madhan and others. Preferring to keep his project away from media glare for now, Kumar took the first shot of the film, accompanied by his technical team. Kumar has teamed up with his all time favourite Santhosh Narayanan for the music. The duo has done Attakathi, Pizza, SoodhuKavvum, The Villa and now Lucia, which is under production. This will be their sixth film together. Others in Kumar’s team include editor Leo John Paul and cameraman Gopi Amarnath. While the hunt for a bold and cute looking heroine is on, Kumar has signed Naveen Chandra as his hero. This is the duo’s second film together, after Sarabham, which is soon to be released. Kumar is busy planning a grand audio launch for Sarabham. He will re-commence shooting his directorial venture, which is a thriller, after the release of Sarabham in mid July.
