The locations, especially the ones abroad shown in the feature films attract millions of film buffs.
As per a survey, Indians top the tourism charts for the number of tourists visiting the famous locations abroad. I am certain that our initiative will turn out to be highly fruitful in promoting and creating awareness about the untapped potential of Film Tourism in India."
Rajan Sehgal, Co-Chairman- Tourism Committee, PHDCCI, said, "Film Tourism is rapidly gaining popularity with Indian films reaching out to different untapped locations across the country which have great potential to be the next hotspot tourism destination. We are getting good response from the domestic and international tourism boards who would be interested to share the best practices implemented in their states and countries to promote Film Tourism as a niche sector."
