Team

Muralitharan

Murali’s love for art is the heart and soul of the company that he started - Vivahhika. While he was studying his computer science engineering he volunteered to do a bunch of graphic design projects for his department events. His interest in cinematography and film-making led him to edit videos for presentations. His designs gained popularity and soon he was freelancing for stage decorations and background set-ups for intercollegiate cultural events. Murali is his most enthusiastic self when he is involved in event-organizing. His creative energy is contagious. He is a natural leader and his team look up to him for inspiration whenever they hit dead-ends. It’s no surprise that the youngster who started out as the school’s beloved Fine Arts Secretary is leading a team of artists, designers and creative heads. Growing up, he spent many hours in his dad’s kirana at the foothills of Maruthamalai which helped him grow into the people’s person that he is today. A talented multitasker, Murali can juggle two phone calls, manage his team, oversee the production planning, and soothe a worried client - all at the same time! In school and college, Murali was always the cricket and football captain. Today he continues to play his favourite sports in domestic leagues. An ardent Apple fan, he spends his free time researching and geeking out with the latest gadgets and tech gizmo.

Muralitharan

Founder
Santhosh Kumar

San was a wizkid. When he was 9 years old, his interest in this thing called “internet” was piqued. So, he joined the first batch of “internet coaching” in a browsing centre called The Downtown Cafe in R.S.Puram, Coimbatore. Those were the days of MSN and Yahoo! Soon, a keen interest in graphic design followed. San pursued his interest in designing in college. He spent his time sharpening his skills in Adobe Photoshop, learning photography and cinematography. He designed the logo for the Student Union in PSG Tech, two years in a row. He did numerous presentations for his department, Fashion Technology. He was quickly grabbed up by other departments to make animations using Adobe AfterEffects and Swish. Indeed, his impressive designs spoke volumes about this introverted artist! Having spotted one of San’s presentations and his self-customized notebook Murali decided to add him to the team and the trio was born. San is usually the brand building expert and designer at Vivahhika. San is an explorer by heart. Architecture, nature and music are his constant inspirations. When he gets the time and when the skies are opportune, he stargazes with his telescope.

Co-founder
Santhosh Krishnan

As a youngster, Santhosh loved writing scripts for tamil plays for his school theatre. As the days passed, his involvement in theatre grew more holistic. Apart from writing, he also started organizing events and activities both in school and his colony, gaining a reputation as a “go-getter” very early on in life. You could leave it to Santhosh to get contacts, talk to the right people, organize work, get the work completed on time and conduct the event flawlessly. He got his bachelor's degree in Physics followed by an MA in Mass Communication and Journalism. Post-grad days were filled with ad-zaps and writing jingles for advertisements. It was during those years that he teamed up with his school buddy, Muralitharan to start their own business. They would take up part-time jobs as stage decorators for college cultural events. They would design, fabricate and set-up the stage so creatively that they were the most sought-after guys for stage décor. All those experiences have helped shape Santhosh into the ‘Taskmaster’ that he is today for Vivahhika. Santhosh’s other interests include cooking, gaming and presenting mono acts and radio plays. Murali and San swear by his masal dosa which, according to them, is finger-licking good!
