In Conversation With AGS Cinemas’ CEO, Archana Kalpathi!

Box Office Queen!



What’s in the road ahead for AGS Cinemas?

We are in the process of expanding to other cities in Tamil Nadu. Every project is in different stages, one is in its land procurement, one is in its design stage, some need approvals etc. So we are looking at Erode, Trichy, Madurai and Coimbatore. We are checking out various properties, so once a week I’m traveling to these places to inspect prospective projects.

Archana is now all set to release her next huge film BIGIL starring Vijay, Nayanthara, Yogi Babu and Jackie Shroff. The film is set to release on October 25th and is one of the most anticipated. But here, she has been the creative producer and has worked on the floor. “It was Vijay sir who wanted me to work on the floor, and be the creative producer. My role was decided during that first meeting,” she said during an interview with The Hindu. She further added, “We were trying for six years, and we were always in touch with him. With Bigil, it fell in place perfectly. We had his dates, and we liked Atlee’s script. It fit into the AGS style of films, as we prefer not doing run-of-the-mill entertainers.”
