Founded in 1946 by AV Meiyappan, AVM Productions is among India’s oldest and most iconic production houses, having made over 3,000 films in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi.

His latest release was a short film, which was also selectively released online, called Idhuvum Kadandhu Pogum in 2014.
