Yogi has planned to hold a direct dialogue with the top film makers of industry to understand their needs and requirements, the kind of rebates they require to set-up their film studios in UP, sources say.– Free Press Journal
The move is significant considering the ongoing spat between actor Kangana Ranaut and Shiv Sena over “Marathi pride and outsider issue”. UP had already declared film as an industry two years ago and upgraded the film making policy, adding several rebates to attract investment in the sector.
Every action has a reaction. This could be a win-win relation between Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. UP will get new revenue stream, UP actors can work with dignity over there and Maharashtra will get less “outsiders”.
Be careful what you wish for.
