Most of the theatre owners in Kanchipuram are rich silk sari manufacturers or textile tycoons, for whom theatre business was just a glamorous hobby. But over the years paying unheard of MG’s for new films had an effect on their business. The grapevine has it that Rs 1 Crore was paid as MG for Endhiran, Rs 65 Lakhs for 7aum Arivu, Rs 50 lakhs for Billa 2 and Rs 30 lakhs for Saguni, which Kanchipuram theatre owners never recovered.
Dhanya Balakrishna began her acting career with performances in theatre, before being signed up to play a supporting role in A. R. Murugadoss's 7aum Arivu, where she played a scientist alongside Suriya and Shruti Haasan. She was next seen in two bilingual projects, portraying supporting roles - Balaji Mohan's Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi and Neethaane En Ponvasantham. itimes.com
