Film policy a historic step to revive Bollywood in J&K: LG Manoj Sinha

SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir’s Lieutenant Governor Thursday said the maiden film policy being unveiled by the UT admin was a historic step and the main aim is to bring back the lost glory of Bollywood for which Kashmir was once famous.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function at SKICC, he said the maiden film policy is indeed a historic step and “I am sure that the golden days will return again for which Kashmir was once known for. The UT admin is doing its best to revive the Bollywood and film policy is a step towards that.”

Speaking on the occasion, famous film actor Amir Khan said that he hasn’t seen any other place as beautiful as Kashmir. “People are more beautiful than this beautiful place,” he said. “I am glad that we are here for shooting.”

Khan hoped that one day he would like to see Kashmiri movies and Kashmir’s own film industry. “I would like to see Kashmiri film industry contribute to the national industry like other states are doing. I hope to see Kashmiri films soon.”—(KNO)
