Welcoming filmakers to Goa, Governor S C Jamir has urged them to take advantage of the state's scenic beauty.
Speaking at the premiere of actor-turned-director Pooja Bhatt's film Holiday, shot in the picturesque location of Goa, Jamir also complimented cast and crew of the film.
"The movie celebrates being ordinary as all of us can't be beautiful", Pooja told mediapersons yesterday during the premiere in the presence of her cast, Dino Morea and Onjolee Nair.
"It was shot for 41 days of which 39 days were in Goa. Goa can be a great destination for premiering films too", she said.
Holiday is the first film premiered in Goa with the exception of films premiered during International Film Festival of India (IFFI), she stated.
Commenting on the film, Pooja said it would demolish the conventional concept that Goa is a place to break a way from the routine life and lie back.
"In fact, we promote that Goa is an escape to get back to life," she added.
She expects the film, in which Dino Morea playing a Goan character, to make good business in the overall market.
