With 17 properties, 32 Screens and an incredible team we’ve managed to become the Second Largest multiplex chain in West Bengal. Also, it gives me extreme pride to mention the unconditional support and vision of Shrikant Mohta & Mahendra Soni who’ve instilled in us the spirit of becoming industry leaders. We are aiming to take cinemas back to the people in an attempt to revive the once flourishing Cinema Exhibition business of Bengal. The last 6 months saw the addition of 16 new screens and that couldn’t have been possible without the sheer belief that the entire team at SVF has in the power of Cinema and Big Screen experience.”
Elated by the tremendous growth of the SVF Cinemas, Mahendra Soni, The Director & Co-Founder of SVF, said, “From operating 16 Screens, six months back, to getting stronger with 32 screens, it’s been an extraordinary journey. They have done a phenomenal job. Looking at the tremendous positive response towards the multiplex chain from different squares of the audiences, Cooch Behar is the latest addition to the experience. I’m happy to see that the audiences are coming back to the theatres after the unprecedented Covid times. Let’s hope that 2022 will be the year that marks the revival of Blockbusters at the Box Office and cinegoers will keep coming back to Cinemas.”
