Recognising the vast untapped potential of the movies & cinemas industry, the Group’s foray into this industry began with the distribution of Tamil, English, and Chinese movies in 2002. Tan Sri Datuk R.Doraisingam Pillai’s strong relationship with Hong Kong producer Raymond Wong and superstars like Donnie Yen enabled Lotus Group Malaysia to become the sole distributor for Raymond Wong films in Malaysia through Lotus Five Star. It is also the main distributor of Tamil and Hindi films in the country for the last two decades. Success in movie distribution industry led to the establishment of Lotus Five Star(LFS) Cinemas through partnership with Mr.Garuna Murthee in 2009. Today, LFS Cinemas is one of the largest cinemas chains in Malaysia with 14 outlets, 61 screens and a seating capacity of 10,096 nationwide.
Beyond the silver screen, Lotus Group has also been one of the largest production companies in Malaysia. Lotus Group’s production arm Codils Media is a cinema screen marketing and advertising agency. Lotus Group has been involved in the production support of TVC & Feature Films for local and overseas clients. In 2019, Lotus Group continues to innovate by announcing ‘Lotus Pictures’, an international film production company.
