Was checking out my WordPress Stats at home, today morning.
Some one had searched for producer anand chakravarthy and landed in my blog.
I knew (about a month back, from my still-in-contact college-buddy S.Ramkumar), that Anand Chakravarthy was into movies. I have mentioned about Anand in my blog “Me and My Memory – 1” about various Anands, as the hockey player Anand from my college. Surprise that he has become search worthy already !!
My blog comes second in the search results. The first result is from The Hindu, regarding the movie Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu he is producing under the banner Imagine Creations. From the article..
Producer Anand Chakravarthy of Imagine Creations gave up his IT job in the United States to come back home to pursue his dream — film production.
Wow, courageous move !!

Anand, If you are reading this – I will be getting in touch with you soon. You are in my target list of customers, for the software company I am going to launch on Oct 1.
Building a product to assist in Production Management (for Film/TV industries, like Gorilla or DAYVID) catering to the Indian market initially, is one of the possibilities I am looking into. If you are willing to be my first customer, I can provide you a great discount.
Let us talk after Oct 1.
“I am convinced that fear of failing in the eyes of the world is the single biggest impediment to amassing wealth”, says Felix Dennis, in his book “How to Get Rich: One of the World’s Greatest Entrepreneurs Shares His Secrets“. Anand Chakravarthy seems to have overcome that fear.
I am sure I would not have got the support of my family, if I were to venture into something like this, at this point. Quiting my software job, to start a software company gets easy approval. But to venture into movies, I cannot even think about that option. Not sure how Anand handled it tough !
Live your dream, Anand !! Not everyone can do it.
And, best wishes to you !!
