New film city in W. Bengal
When the history of Indian film making unfolds its pages, the first name that strikes us is Madras. With full advanced technology color labs and studios, Madras was the dream destination for any average Indian film maker of those days. Even the renowned film maker—who brought new recognition to the India cinema globally—Satyajit Ray mentioned about this city in his book “Our Films, Their Films.”
Not just this Bengal film maker but many of them who hail from West Bengal apparently wanted to make the films on their own land and their wishes now are taking a real form.
A film city would soon be set up in a small town of West Midnapore district of West Bengal. Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan stepped into the town on Monday to have a glimpse of Prayag Film City. A large number of people thronged the place to see the works of film city besides their favorite star in real.
Shahrukh Khan has said that he wondered as to why India, which is prolific in terms of making films, has not got a world class film studio. Talking about Prayag Film City, he said the film city would become a wonder of the world.
If the new film city really becomes a major film destination, then Bengal will remain ideal not in terms of making films, but also in providing the world class set up. (Phani)
