Tarachand's studio is still known for family drama films adorned with the best music. Today, on the day of his death anniversary, we are going to tell you the secrets related to his life.
Many Rajshri films have received awards from time to time for their excellent work. Tarachand was born in 1914 in a Marwari family in Kuchaman, Rajasthan. According to a report, Tarachand's father wanted him to study law after completing his BA, but Tarachand was not interested in it. When his father came to know about this, he sent Tarachand on training at Moti Mahal Theaters.
Tarachand started training at Moti Mahal and after working here for 5 years, he worked hard for everyone. Won. Moti Mahal had the business rights for film distribution in South India called Chamaria Talkie Distributors. This business was not doing very well, so Moti Mahal sent Tarachand to Madras (present-day Chennai) to look after his business.
For your information, tell us that an interesting story about this is that Business Tycoon SS. Vasan started a production company named Chandralekha which proved to be a bad flop in South India. After this Vasan became very disappointed and in the meantime, Tarachand advised that he should dub his production house in Hindi. Because Vasan was not aware of the Hindi language, he was not a confidant about it. Tarachand took the responsibility and the work got done on seeing this.
Vasan gave Tarachand the responsibility of distributing films across India. This required opening of offices of Rajshri Productions across the country overnight, but Tarachand took this risk and thus in 1948 laid the foundation of Rajshri Productions. After Tarachand, generations of his family are still engaged in film production. The subject of the films in this production is very clear. The purpose of these people is to entertain the audience with clean films.
After this, a series of successful films started. The journey started with Aarti (1962) Dosti, Jeevan-Mrityu, Uphaar, Piya Ka Ghar, Saudaagar, Geet Gaata Chal, Tapasya, Chitchor, Dulhan Jo Piya Man Bhaye. He died in 1992.
