An International Film City for Jaipur.
“We have received proposals, including from the Australia-based Warner Roadshow Studios,” an official of the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) said. The proposed city is to come up on 1,000 acres of land in the Jamdoli area, around 15 km from here.
The project got a boost when several producers and directors from the US and Australia discussed the project with JDA Commissioner D.B. Gupta recently. They suggested that the project be worked out in three phases.
A few months back a Singapore-based firm Scenario Media Limited and two Delhi-based firms had evinced interest in the film city project. The Singapore firm had proposed to develop it on the lines of the RamojiFilmCity in Hyderabad.
All the right keywords (decision will be made soon, it got a boost when, to be worked out in phases, received several proposals, awaiting clearance, local employment/future/ growth, …) typical of such government projects are in place. So lets see.
