Gujarat was named the most film-friendly state, at the 63rd National Film Awards, for its effort to ease the shooting of films. The ‘Most Film-Friendly State’ award was introduced this year.
According to rough estimates, more than 100 non-Gujarati feature films have been shot in the state in the last three years including films in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Bhojpuri and Bengali.
Bollywood Baadshah Shahrukh Khan’s up-coming drama ‘Raees’ and this year’s first big hit ‘Airlift’ starring Akshay Kumar have been shot in Kutch.
