KTR Called Subhash Ghai for Meeting
Telangana State Information Technology Minister K. Tarakarama Rao (KTR) called of the renowned filmmaker Subhash Ghai for a meeting to discuss about film institute set up in Hyderabad proposal which was failed to implement in 2010. Subhash Ghai who had suffered impediment in 2010 with the court cancelling land allotment for his acting school Whistling Woods International Limited (WWIL) in Hyderabad has revived his proposal.
Minister KTR invited Subhash Ghai to set up WWIL in the Film City proposed to be developed at Rachakonda near Hyderabad. According to an official statement, the filmmaker responded positively to this proposal. KTR also asked Subha Ghai to be partner with the state government in the proposed Gaming City, which could offer graphics and content development for the film industry.
It may be recalled that in 2009, the government of united Andhra Pradesh had allotted 20.10 acres of land to WWIL near historic Golconda Fort in Hyderabad for establishing a world-class training institute of film, television, animation and media arts. The land was allotted for 66 years on nominal lease of one percent of the land value. However, the Andhra Pradesh High Court in 2010 quashed the allotment. The Comptroller and Auditor General in 2012 had rapped the state government for allotting the land in violation of AP Ancient and Historical Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Rules 1960, which prohibits alienation of lands forming part of historical sites.
News coming out that Telangana state government is ready to allot land near Rachakonda for WWIL. Will Subha Ghai accepts KTR proposal or not rime will decide!!!!
