Salim Kumar tried direction for the first time in his career and that too for a good cause. He directed a movie named as Compartment and the main them of this movie is about differently able children. But sadly the theaters wasn't full and most of the theaters were screening the movie with a few audiences. So seeing this Salim Kumar has decided to with draw his movie and has decided to re release his movie in the month of April as it will be the vocation season. He thinks that it will be the appropriate and clever thing to do.
In an press meet conducted by him he said that he is sad that even government is not taking any steps to promote movies like Compartment. Government theaters nowadays are running behind commercially successful movies. He said that if there comes a situation that his movie wont get any theaters he will rent projectors and will travel to every village and town and will show his movie for free.
