Many political pundits thought that Telugu Film Industry would start moving to Amravati after the formation of new state of Andhra Pradesh. But to everyone’s surprise, nothing like that took place. Producers, directors and heroes are reluctant to ditch Hyderabad and move to Amaravati, at least as of the date. Understanding the situation, AP CM Chandrababu Naidu has come out with a strategic plan.
According to the Amaravati city plan, the CRDA [Capital Region Development Authority] has allotted 5167 acres of land for establishing a media city. The media city would host various businesses, directly and indirectly, related to film production and television.
The AP government is ready to sell 20 – 30 acres of land at a price of Rs. 50 lakhs for the constructional purpose of a film studio. The government is implementing single window procedure. It is heard that AP Sarkar is ready to give tax benefits and reimbursements on various fronts.
Chandrababu is aiming to create a full-fledged business park hosting various media houses by 2021. From 2021 for about 15 years, the AP Government is planning to host international film carnival. Slowly but steadily, Chandrababu is putting all the efforts to bring International standard film studios and Tollywood film industry to Amaravati.
