Now, Himwood on cards after Bollywood, Ollywood, Kollywood, Tollywood, Mollywood…?
Prospects of a film city in the hilly state of Himachal Pradesh were explored this week during discussions between the state’s Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur and an ace actor Anupam Kher who visited the CM’s residence on a personal invite.
Almost all major states have their own cinema industry like Tollywood-AP; Mollywood – Kerala; Kollywood-Tamil Nadu; Ollywood -Odisha.& so on.
The two discussed the long-cherished dream of the state having its own film city amid nature’s bountiful surroundings, that provide natural sets for shootings to producers. Scores of films were shot there for the last several decades.
After the visit, Mr. Kher posted a tweet that said It was wonderful to interact with you(CM) about various topics including the possibility of having a film city in HP When things become normal.
Mr. Kher who hails from Shimla is on a nostalgic trip to his home state with his mother Dulari who has ventured out on an outing after two years because of the raging pandemic.
The actor who is a frequent visitor to the Shimla’s Gaiety Theatre and had cut his teeth in the acting there, also went to his childhood school, saluting those teachers who had sometimes gave him routine punishments too to burnish his latent talents.
Thank you Hon. @jairamthakurbjp, CM Himachal & Sadhana ji for inviting me & #Dulari to your residence & extending amazing hospitality!! It was wonderful to interact with you about various topics including a possibility of having a film city in HP when things become normal. 🙏🌺 pic.twitter.com/y13We1xBTX

It was an amazingly nostalgic & emotional moment for me to visit my school #DAVHigherSecondarySchool in Shimla. I was here from 1966 to ‘71. A back bencher. Now it is an #EnglishMedium school. So Building & classrooms are new. But my memories of those days are fresh! Jai Ho!❤️ pic.twitter.com/yJCR9zogd1
