CHANDIGARH: The arrest of Vindoo Dara Singh in connection with spot-fixing in IPL has cast a shadow of gloom over Dara Studio situated in phase-VI of Mohali. Dara Studio was established by Vindoo’s late father, Dara Singh, who was a well known wrestler and Bollywood actor.
The land for the establishment of the studio was given by the Punjab government at concessional rates to the late wrestler as a part of a bigger project to set up a Film city in Mohali. However, Film city never came up and Dara Studio too never took off. The premises are now being utilized as a marriage palace. A part of the complex has been rented out to a TV channel. Because of its location on national highway-21, Dara Studio now commands a market price of hundreds of crores of rupees.
After the death of Dara Singh, the property is being looked after by Vindoo and his elder brother Amrik Singh Randhawa. Vindoo visits the studio at least once a year.
