GV's preview theatre now has a new owner

S.R. Ashok Kumar

CHENNAI: Late G. Venkateswaran's G.V. Films was the first production company in the region to go public.

After his demise, his first company, Sujatha Films, ran up an income-tax arrears of Rs. 19 crores.

The I-T department recently auctioned his Good Luck preview theatre at Nungambakkam.

The property was bought by director Priyadarshan for Rs. 2.01 crores.

The theatre was re-christened `Four Frames Sound theatre'.

Mr. Priyadharsan has directed more than 50 films in Malayalam and worked in other language movies.

The director says he had been on the lookout for a good preview theatre.

"I have a company named `Four Frames' which has all post-production facilities in one place. When the films are ready I would like to screen them in my own theatre. I am going to upgrade the facilities in the theatre and ensure that it continues to cater to the film fraternity."
