As per a report by Mid-Day, the UP government is aggressively pushing the plan about setting up the country’s biggest film industry in the state, which is in its initial stage. The state government now wants to take inputs from the producers who are looking forward to shoot heir projects in the state. The idea is to have the producers speak about their requirements and give suggestions about the film industry in the UP.
The daily quoted Navneet Sehgal, additional chief secretary (information), UP, as saying, “We want to convey that the filmmakers are welcome to shoot in UP. We want their suggestions on the facilities they want in the proposed film city. The project is in the planning and designing stage, so we need to know their requirements.”
It was in September this year that Yogi Adityanath had announced the project of making the biggest film city of the country in UP. He also had a discussion with a few filmmakers and other prominent faces from the film industry in UP a few weeks after his announcement. The CM will be arriving in Mumbai tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Lucknow is the first city of north India to release the bond of its municipal corporation and soon the municipal corporations of Ghaziabad, Varanasi, Kanpur Nagar and Agra will follow suit.
The Rs 200 crore-bond issue was floated just before Diwali and was oversubscribed by 4.5 times to raise Rs 450 crore.
