Recently, the Minister of State for Home Affairs, who reached Kashmir for the outreach program of the Central Government, arrived. Kishan Reddy had announced that Kashmir would be provided employment through the film industry as well. Let me tell you that Farooq Khan, Advisor to the Lieutenant Governor has visited Mumbai and invited filmmakers to visit Jammu and Kashmir.
Union Minister of State for Agriculture Mahendra Nath Pandey also assured to train the local youth in various genres related to film making during their visit to Kashmir in January. Following his assurances, two senior officials associated with the Union Ministry have also visited the Kashmir Valley. He also visited an army-led skill development center in North Kashmir where local youth are learning filmmaking work.
There was a time when there were one and a half dozen theaters in the Valley. But because of terrorist violence, Bollywood moved away from Kashmir, with local filmmakers making films in Kashmir with limited means. After the implementation of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act 2019, in the positive atmosphere in the valley environment, people associated with not only Bollywood and Tollywood but also Punjabi Film Industries have started coming forward for film shooting in Kashmir. Three films were also shot in Kashmir during one year.
At present, theaters in Kashmir are still closed and the state administration is also trying to open them. Overall, if everything goes well, then this year many prominent production houses will be seen shooting in Kashmir with big film stars. Filmmaker-director of Kashmir Mushtaq Ali Ahmed Khan is happy that the need to revive the film culture in Kashmir is understood. Closed cinematic locks will be opened. People will get employment and entertainment.
Young filmmaker Bilal Jaan also says that the government will not have to work very hard to start closed cinemas in Srinagar. With the commencement of cinema and the availability of resources related to shooting, Srinagar itself will become a film city. Local filmmaker Arshad said that despite having very little business, local filmmakers and directors are making regional films. He will also give full support in the government's plan. He said that thousands of students of the Valley have degrees in mass communication and film production, but due to lack of better resources available in this area, they either migrate to other states of the country or seek employment in other areas.
On 21 February in Mumbai, investors and film directors showed a tendency to build a film city in Kashmir at the Global Investors' Conference headed by SK Murmu, the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir. In addition, a cinema-related company has plans to open cinemas in every district of Kashmir. An MoU has also been signed from a company in this regard. This company will open multiplex cinema.
Eminent producer-director of Hindi cinema Madhur Bhandarkar has agreed to open a production house and film institute in Jammu and Kashmir. Recently, filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala also met Lt. Governor Murmu to discuss topics related to the shooting. A company associated with the TV industry is also preparing to open a studio here. In fact, the whole process is aimed at giving employment to the youth of Kashmir and preventing them from wandering.
