Initially, there was a challenge to get the land for the Film City in Udaipur, however, with his persistent efforts in collaboration with the Udaipur administration, the land was finally identified in Gogunda near Udaipur.
The proposal for this land was sent to the state government a few months back and the latter has now renewed its interest in the matter, he said.
“The government is showing a positive attitude and we are just waiting for the announcement”, said Madhwani adding that they have investors ready to invest money in the Film City.
Once the project is ready, it will boost tourism and will also generate employment for one lakh people, he said.
