South Indian film industry witnessed yet another ‘first’ as Gautham Menon’s production house, Photon Kathaas Productions, has been listed on the AIM market in London, “It is the first publicly- traded south Indian based film production company on an International Stock Exchange.” said an elated Gautham.

The note read as follows: “With Photon Kathaas Productions, I look forward to continuing my successful association with accomplished technicians such as Rajeevan, Anthony, Nalini Sriram, Thamarai and Manoj Paramahamsa, who I share a great rapport with and have helped me create what I believe is good cinema.”

Gautham’s recent release Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa which was seen as a return to the love genre for the director was very well received across theatres.

The movie featured music from our very own Double Oscar winning A. R. Rahman.

Taking this relation a step further the director confirmed that “Photon Kathaas Productions was privileged to have AR Rahman as the chief creative mentor and advisor to the Board”

All movies further director by Gautham will hereby be exclusively for Photon Kathaas Productions from now as he confirmed that he will have other board members on a regular basis.

His latest projects include Untitled Rana Project a Telugu film and Tamil flick Thuppariyum Anand both which are in pre production stage as a director.

Let’s hope the magician who gave us hits like Kaaka Kaaka, Minnale and the very recent Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa continues to weave his magic.Wishing you all the luck for your further ventures.
