Gemini Film Circuit is a film distribution and production studio unit in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.

Career[edit]

The company was founded by Ravi Shankar Prasad who also owned Anand Cine Services and it went on to produce and distribute many successful Tamil films including the remakes of Rajkumar Hirani films like Vasool Raja MBBS, Shankar Dada MBBS, Shankar Dada Zindabad & Nanban.[a] However the failure of Mani Ratnam's Kadal (2013) affected company's finances after the venture became a surprise failure at the box office, and distributors of Kadal wanted compensation before Madha Gaja Raja was released.[1][2] The company made its comeback co-producing and distributing the Malayalam film Unda (2019).

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Vasool Raja MBBS starring Kamal Hassan and Prabhu was the only Tamil film of the Munna Bhai series as only Vasool Raja MBBS was remade whereas both the films of the series (Munna Bhai M. B. B. S. and Lage Raho Munna Bhai) were remade as Shankar Dada MBBS and Shankar Dada Zindabad respectively.
