Government to frame policy to push India as global entertainment hub

The government is working out a comprehensive policy framework to help India emerge as a global entertainment hub.

According to information and broadcasting minister Sushma Swaraj, the government will play the role of a proactive facilitator and create a policy to make India a global entertainment hub,”

Pointing out the initiatives that the government is likely to incorporate in the policy, the information and broadcasting minister said visa procedures for foreign crews shooting films in India would be made simple. The government is also working for the finalisation of co-production agreements with different countries.

Regarding film exports, she said a fairly liberal amount had been budgeted for promotion of Indian films abroad in the Tenth Five-Year Plan.

The growth rate of the entertainment industry was 30 per cent per annum, surpassing most other sectors, Swaraj said and added that India had numerous advantages for becoming the centre for providing entertainment products to the global market.
