ACTOR and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha’s team on Saturday visited three sites near the State capital to select a location for the proposed film city.
Earlier, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh assured Sinha at a meeting that his government was ready to provide land required for the purpose. Sinha’s team visited Shahganj, Dewatia and Chiklod. They are likely to visit Neelbad, Delawari and Satgarhi on Sunday.
Chouhan told Sinha that the State was an appropriate place for setting up a film city because it was full of natural beauty - rivers, dense forests and waterfalls.
Sinha said that he wanted to set up the film city in Madhya Pradesh so that the youth of the State could make careers in film industry. Besides, this would also boost tourism, he added.
Sinha is in the City with a team of experts to select a place for the film city project. According to sources, he wants to set up the film city with the most-advanced TV and film studios, an acting school and a hostel in the vicinity of Bhopal. Senior officials were present during Sinha’s meeting with Chouhan.
