Vijaya Vauhini Studios was once a major a motion picture movie studio in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.This was for some time the biggest film studio in Asia in terms of studio floor space. The studio was a result of a merger between Vauhini Studios and Vijaya Productions, when in 1948 a successful Telugu & Tamil movie producer Moola Narayana Swamy leased the studios which was under heavy liabilities to the Vijaya Productions run by Bommireddy Nagi Reddy, Aluri Chakrapani who were one time partners of Moola Narayana Swamy in 1930's. Some of these films such as Pathala Bhairavi, Pelli Chesi Choodu (as Kalyanam Panni Paar 6 months later), Chandraharam, and Maya Bazar were dubbed into Tamil at the same time, Missamma was remade as Missiamma (1955) with Gemini Ganesan playing NTR's role. Excepting Chandraharam and Uma Chandi Gauri Shankarula Katha, nearly all movies made by Vijaya Pictures were box office hits.
