Lucknow: During the groundbreaking ceremony (GBC@IV) on February 19 at the Indira Gandhi Pratishthan in Lucknow, the people of Uttar Pradesh will have their first glimpse of the state’s first International Film City, set to be constructed in Jewar.

A dedicated stall at the GBC@IV venue has been allocated to showcase Chief Minister Yogi’s ambitious project, the International Film City, to the public.

Bayview Projects LLP and Bhutani Group, which acquired the bid for the film city, are designing the replica of the film city at this stall itself. Through prototypes and curved screens, the strengths of the international film city will be showcased at the stall.

In this, visitors can expect to encounter a diverse array of sets, ranging from the majestic Ram temple in Ayodhya to the tranquil surroundings of Kedarnath, and from the bustling streets of London to picturesque locations across Canada. During this time, the director of Bayview Company and veteran Bollywood director and producer, Boney Kapoor, Ashish Bhutani, and Ali Chatley from the Bhutani Group will also be in attendance. Boney Kapoor has also expressed his commitment to making Film City world-class, as per the intention of CM Yogi.

It is noteworthy that the Yogi government is going to launch an investment of more than Rs 10 lakh crore in the state through a groundbreaking ceremony on February 19. It is to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The stall will exude the same allure as the Film City itself

Veteran Bollywood director and producer Boney Kapoor emphasized, “Our priority is not only to ensure the perfection of the Film City but also to create an impeccable stall at GBC, presenting a magnificent portrayal of the proposed film city.”

Highlighting the efforts being made, Kapoor mentioned, “State-of-the-art cameras are being imported from Singapore. If delivered on time, they will enhance the stall’s realism.” He further noted, “Our art director has visited Lucknow, sharing comprehensive details of the Film City’s design for the stall. Though time is limited, we are optimistic that the stall will exude a world-class aura akin to the real Film City.”

Furthermore, Boney Kapoor affirmed his presence in Lucknow on the 19th to provide comprehensive information about the Film City. He assured, “The film city, developed under the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority, will indeed become a world-class establishment as envisioned by CM Yogi. I look forward to witnessing its aura upon completion.”

The stall will be ready by February 18

Rajeev Arora, GM of Boney Kapoor’s firm Bayview Projects LLP, said, “We aim to showcase the essence of Film City through innovative means, such as a globe and a curved screen. Our goal is to provide visitors with a glimpse of the proposed Film City on the Yamuna Expressway.”

He further elaborated, “The upcoming Film City will feature a diverse range of permanent sets, encompassing a theme park, amusement park, studios, golf club, and major temples. Visitors to our stall at GBC will have the opportunity to preview replicas of these sets. It will include the grand Ram temple in Ayodhya, the Kedarnath Dham in Uttarakhand, as well as major religious sites throughout the country and a list of major state-specific locations. Moreover, Film City will showcase sets from prime international locations like London, Canada, and Switzerland. The infrastructure will also boast luxurious five-star hotels, captivating fountains, and various other amenities.
