Shree Ashtavinayak remembers MAIN HOON NA!

Shah Rukh Khan's MAIN HOON NA not only saw the emergence of choreographer Farah Khan as a director to be reckoned with in Bollywood, but was also instrumental in establishing one of the biggest production and distribution company, Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision. Confused? We will tell you exactly why. And it comes from none other than the managing director of Shree Ashtavinayak, Dhilin Mehta.
Dhilin was one of the major forces behind the transformation of a simple regional television production unit to a full fledged film company. Their earlier two films, FUNTOOSH (starring Paresh Rawal) and AGNIPANKH, failed at the ticket window. However their luck changed when the company entered distribution circle and acquired King Khan's MAIN HOON NA for an unheard of price for the Bombay circuit. Wise men from the trade even sniggered at the foolhardy, but the company not only recovered the crazy price but also went on to make a handsome profit from the film. Naturally, as the movie was a super-hit! Since then, there was no looking back.
Now, with the super successful JAB WE MET behind them and with promising films like KIDNAP, GOLMAAL RETURNS, MAHARATHI and BLUE to look forward to, Shree Astavinayak seem set to rule the distribution and production circuits in the days and months to come!
