Founder & CEO

Born to a business family, and son of renowned financer & overseas distributor ‘Gordhan Chhabria’, Cinema was the very world he turned to, as much for his reality as for his astute passion, becoming a vital contributing figure in creating a change in another world of this very industry in time.

Progressing from the family business that was already into films, with a tertiary peripheral view of overseas distribution of films with Galaxy Exports’, (the repertoire of some successful films distributed overseas by Galaxy include cult classics of various genres and sub-genres including ‘Khoon Bhari Maang’, ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’, ‘Parinda’ & ‘Ram Lakhan’ to name a few). Gaining further leverage into a vital business aspect of filmmaking came from another vertical of Galaxy Exports - Film Finance & Film Trading, which in time deepened his knowledge and know how about the razor sharp world of film financing, putting in place the element which helped him recognize what it took to put a progressive dream into a reality with the practical scrunches and boulders right in place.

Eventually taking off on the mantle of Independent footing, it was time to take his vision further, and he independently floated a Video Publishing Company “Everest Entertainment” to market & distribute Home Videos of Hindi Feature Films, building a strong library of over 125 films in a short span of three years, including the unforgettable classics such as ‘Khuda Gawaah’, ‘Aankhen’, ‘Arjun’, ‘Shola Aur Shabnam’, ‘Nagin’, ‘Jaani Dushman’, ‘Kati Patang’ , ‘Amanush’ & ‘Naram Garam’, stirring his direction to an even larger pool of execution in the entertainment section.

With a building momentum and exposure into the various facets of Cinema, production was only a natural progression waiting to happen, which eventually shaped up as a transition from the business side to the creative side of storytelling. And it all began when he identified the patterns of distribution in the Regional segment, specifically the Marathi Industry, which he discovered was a space not tapped well until then.

Another venture, another effort at fleshing out the nuances for this segment specifically from distribution and the business perspective, eventually lead him to going with his ‘gut’ as he ventured in for the first time into production with Mahesh Manjrekar’s ambitiously written, Mee Shivajiraje Bhosale Boltoy. A decision which paid off brilliantly. One hit followed after another, and there were memorable classics such as Shikshanachya Aaicha Gho’, ‘Moraya' & 'Tukaram' which followed, and met with equal applause, both critically and commercially.

There was no looking back after that, and with Managing Director Sanjay Chhabria’s vision, Everest Entertainment became a household name which today not only produces and commissions Marathi films but also distributes and showcases films globally across all formats: Cinema, Home Entertainment, Television and New Media. Today, Everest can boast of having build an impressive film library with over 250 titles, categorically establishing itself as one of the prime content owners in the business so far.
