Western Indian state Maharashtra is all set to have a 305 acre-film city in Nandos village in Sindhudurg district, bordering Goa.
The new destination is likely to emerge as an one-stop destination for film shootings in the country, especially for Bollywood, and tourism.
The ambitious project is carried out by Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) with the support of Sai Bollywood Filmcity India Pvt Ltd, one of the leading developers, and foreign investors.
A top official said the Rs200 billion-project is expected to be completed over next four years.
"The project will be spread over 305 acres in Sindhudurg's Nandos village and it will have a special inscription on the hill with 'Bollywood' written on it, on par with Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles, USA," said Kamal Kaushik, managing director of Sai Bollywood Filmcity India Pvt Ltd. The company has roped in several foreign investors through FDI route and has also partnered with Hindi film industry stalwarts like Motion Picture Distributors Association (India) Pvt Limited, he said.
The entire project would be completed in three phases.
