Prana Studios, backed by Mukesh Ambani and Anand Mahindra, has won the bid to purchase bankrupt Rhythm & Hues, which recently won the visual-effects Oscar for Life of Pi, pipping other contenders such as BSE-listed Prime Focus and China's Jian Yamning. Prana, with a big presence in Mumbai and Los Angeles, will acquire the company through its new operating company 34x118 Holdings.
Credited with editing many award-winning films, R&H filed for bankruptcy under US law's Chapter 11 in February.
