Gemini Studios

Gemini Studios was launched when Thiruthuraipoondi Subramanian Srinivasan (aka. S. S. Vasan) (1903–1969) bought a film distribution concern at an auction and renamed it Gemini Pictures also known as Gemini Studios. The name was chosen because Mr. S.S. Vasan was also involved in horse racing and owned a successful race horse named Gemini.[1] Gemini Studios served as a breeding ground for innumerable artists and technicians for the south Indian Film Industry. The Gemini twins became a household symbol and the Gemini flyover was named after the original studio at that junction.
