History[edit]

Sivaji Productions company is owned by Prabhu Ganesan and his brother Ramkumar Ganesan. It is named after their father, the thespian Sivaji Ganesan. Notable films released under their banner includes Chandramukhi and Delhii Heights.

Sivaji Productions was started in 1956 by Dr. Sivaji Ganesan and his brother Sri V.C. Shanmugam. It was first started as a distribution company and distributed many of Dr. Sivaji's movies. In 1958, Sivaji Productions co-produced its first film Amardeep which was a Hindi remake of Amardeepam. Its first solo production was Vietnam Veedu in 1969 with Dr. Sivaji in the lead role.

Since then, Sivaji Productions has produced about 18 films till date. The last being Chandramukhi-the biggest blockbuster of 2005 and the longest run film in South India.

After Sri V.C. Shanmugam’s death in 1986, Dr. Sivaji's son Mr. G.Ramkumar took over Sivaji Productions.

Sivaji Productions has also ventured into the production of television serials. It has produced two serials, Kokila engey Pogirral in Tamil and Seethama Maeyamma in Telugu and is currently producing a Tamil serial called Thavam for Kalaingar TV.

In 2009, they began work on a project with Ajith Kumar, titled Asal. It didn't go well at the box office, but Prabhu confirmed that he will do another movie with Ajith and it is Billa II, directed by Chakri Toleti.
