It all began when Karthik Kumar, a Chemical Engineer from Chennai and Sunil Vishnu K. a B.Com. graduate from Bhopal landed up at the Mudra Institute of Communications, Ahmedabad (MICA) for an MBA in Marketing Communications. When the time came to do their thesis, both Sunil and Karthik defied convention by doing a joint thesis on the feasibility of an entertainment company with theatre as the core offering. They parted for two years and took up corporate jobs to make up their capital, and in 2003 they both quit their jobs and moved to Chennai to start ‘evam’.
