Kapoor, who’s executing the project in collaboration with Bhutani Group, told the PM that he planned the project after carrying out a comprehensive study of film cities worldwide.

He added that the film city in Uttar Pradesh would become a one-stop solution for filmmakers at home and across the globe.

“We have tried to show features of the film city at the stall. There, we are planning to establish permanent sets, including a theme park, amusement park, studios, a golf club, and major temples,” said Rajeev Arora, the general manager of Kapoor’s firm.

“Visitors to our stall have the opportunity to have a glimpse of what the sets will look like,” added Kapoor.

With the capacity to accommodate over 30 film productions at a time, the actual infrastructure will feature versatile shooting floors of varying dimensions, complemented by an array of in-house equipment such as lighting and cameras, officials said.
