Asian Tarakarama Cineplex, founded in 1978, has been renovated

On December 14, actor Nandamuri Balakrishna inaugurated Asian Tarakarama Cineplex, located at Kachiguda, Hyderabad. The cineplex recently underwent large-scale renovations before being inaugurated by NBK. At the time of establishment, it was named Tarakarama, after Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, who built it. In 1978, NTR’s film Akbar Saleem Anarkali was the first film to be screened at the Tarakarama theatre.

Since its opening, it has undergone multiple renovations. In 1995, it was significantly damaged in the riots following the assassination of Former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. 

A decade ago, Asian Cinema and Multiplex Pvt Ltd leased the location for 100 months. Suneil Narang was brought on to make renovations to the theatre. In the revamping process, the screen started to host mainstream cinema as opposed to the adult films it was known to project before. The new management digitised the ticketing system to make it easier for audiences to purchase movie tickets. 

Now, the Asian Group has upgraded the screen and significantly brought down the seating capacity in favour of sofas and recliner seats. Now renamed ‘Asian Tarakarama Cineplex,’ viewers can catch ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ in the theatre, starting December 16. 

About the reopening of the theatre, Balayya said, “Because it bears the names of both my father and mother, Asian Tarakarama Theatre feels like a temple to me. In this theatre, my son Mokshagna Taraka Rama Teja was named by his grandfather. This place holds many memories for me.”
