How did he make that possible? By letting the stories unfold on a grandiose screen that is nestled in Chennai city’s sky along with the mild rumbling of the coastal breeze. Prarthana beach drive-in theatre & restaurant complex came to life on the 10th of May in the year 1991. Srinivasa Enterprises are the brawn and brains behind managing this unique business.
