About Us

Natyavihar Kalakendra is a brain-child of one of the foremost artists of our country, Hema Malini. An institution dedicated to the promotion of Art and culture, it was established in Chennai in the ‘70s. The institution had a school in which young students were trained in the various arts like classical dance and music – Vocal and instrumental.

Once it shifted base to Mumbai, under the direct guidance of Hema Malini, the institution has come out with several stage productions. Hema Malini, with her vast knowledge and deep abiding interest in the classical arts, was able to fuse the traditional and the modern elements on one stage and present awe-inspiring productions to highly appreciative audiences within India and around the world.
