These B-Town Celebs Had To Shut Down Their Production Houses


Currently, in the industry, it is one of the best businesses to have a production house to make more money apart from acting. A production house is the root of filmmaking, without the proper vision of how to make and execute the making of a movie, the life of the production house is unstable due to more and more cut-throat competition.

The production house itself is a big business. There have been certain mishaps in the lives of these artists who opened their production houses and due to unfortunate events they had to shut it down.

These actors used to have their own production houses:

1) Ameesha Patel:


Till now she must have made the strongest debut, as the leading actress of blockbuster ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’. The production house which she launched in 2011 by the name of ‘Ameesha Patel Productions’ was promoted with a big party could not survive. The reason being that it did not have any projects to start with so eventually the actress shut it down.

2) Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla:


The actors collaborated for their production house which was named ‘Dreamz Unlimited’. It is not that, that they did not have movies but after delivering a series of flops, production house was shut down. Shahrukh Khan once again invested money in another production house naming it ‘Red Chillies Entertainment Ltd’. Currently, it is one of the biggest production houses in the country.

Amitabh Bachchan has struggled in a lot even in his early days before entering the Bollywood industry. After being the biggest actor in the industry he went on to start a production company in the 1990’s also producing big hit movies. But at that time in 90’s the era, movies, story, entry of new actors and evolution of content were the key factors which affected the production house of Big B, and it went bankrupt. Shutting it down was the only thing to do at that time. This actor has earned everything from scratch, again gone to scratch losing everything and earned it all back.
