Storyteller Spotlight: Veeru Murugappan

For this week’s #StorytellerSpotlight, we got in touch with Veeru Murugappan, Founder & Director of Coromandel Productions Pte. Ltd. and Co-owner of barn media.

Among many other things, Veeru and his crew have worked on some of the most memorable sports montages – yup, those same ones that go viral at every ICC event!

One movie/ TV show you recommend to anyone who asks - and why you loved it.
