Ramoji Film City directs its way to the Guinness World Records

Ramoji Film City, the 2,500-acre film studio complex from the Eenadu Group, has been declared the world’s largest film studio complex by the Guinness World Records. It replaces Hollywood’s Universal Studios from the position.

Also regarded as one of Asia’s most popular tourist destinations, Ramoji Film City offers comprehensive and international standard pre-production, production and post-production resources along with exciting recreation centers for a fun filled holiday.

Set up in 1996, Ramoji Film City has managed to find its way into the Guinness Book of World Records in just nine years, replacing Hollywood’s Universal Studios from the position in the process.

Ramoji Film City, or RFC as it is popularly called, offers comprehensive and international standard pre-production, production and post-production resources, thus attracting national and international filmmakers, TV production units, ad filmmakers, music video makers, etc.

RFC has numerous locations and mock-ups, set constructions, properties and costumes, shooting stages, camera and equipment, which can be customised as per requirement. The state-of-the art post-production facilities in audio, digital / SFX and film processing, make for some sleek looking films, including the Oscar-nominated Lagaan and the internationally acclaimed Chokher Bali. RFC is said to be completely equipped so that a person who walks in with a script can walk out with a canned film!

Entering the Guinness World Records was a long process, company sources said. However, being able to replace Universal Studios to attain the position of the world’s largest film studio complex “is a tribute to the glory of Indian cinema,” said A Ramamohan Rao, Managing Director, Ramoji Film City. He added, “With the recognition of world class infrastructure created here, this certification is a reinforcement of the fact.”

RFC is also considered to be one of Asia’s most popular tourist destinations as its offers huge landscapes of visual treat, recreation centres and comfortable accommodation to holiday seekers.

All in all, RFC is a destination for not just discerning film makers, but also for tourists from all over the world and is yet another entity that does India proud.
