It was Aarthi Sivakumar's dream to enter the film industry. She tried contacting Santosh Sivan for over a year before she could finally meet the director. He put her on to Sreekar Prasad and Janaki Viswanath. She worked with Ms. Viswanath in `Kanavu Meippada Vendum' and Mr. Sivan in the award-winning `Navarasa.'

Amitha Madan, whose first film is `Pudupettai.' Her entry happened overnight, literally. The Electronic Media graduate met director Selvaraghavan and left for work the following day.

Soundarya Srinivasan, a student of Visual Communication heard that director Vishnuvardhan was looking for assistant directors.

Divya Madan, also a student of Visual Communication.

She met Gautham Menon and gave up her job that very night. Divya has worked in `Garshana' (Telugu version of `Khaaka Khaaka') and `Vettayadu Vilayadu.'"
