Ranchi: Noted film personalities today hailed the film policy of Jharkhand.
"It will certainly strengthen possibilities of film production in Jharkhand, which is blessed with natural beauty," Mumbai-based film producer Ashok Saran said.
Appreciating the state government's proposal to set up a film city in Patratu in Ramgarh district, he said the policy would provide opportunities to personalities to exhibit their talent.
Renowned documentary producer Meghnath supported the policy as well as the proposal for a film city.
He favoured a discussion as to whether the film city would be in the pattern of Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad or Film Development Corporation of Kerala, an official release said quoting him.
Apprising the film personalities about the recently approved policy and related issues, Director of Information and Public Relation Department, Jharkhand, Awadhesh Kumar Pandey, said the state government framed the policy to encourage film production as well as to address problems faced by film personalities of the state.
Urging them to give suggestions with regard to setting up a film city, Pandey said the state Public Relation Department would organise a workshop in February to discuss issues related to film production and promotion.
Film personalities like Sri Prakash, Biju Toppo, Prabal Mahato participated in the meeting.
