Siddharth Roy Kapur: Indian film units receive a warm welcome abroad
Producer Siddharth Roy Kapur , who is president of the Producers Guild of India, said that the Indian film industry receives a warm welcome in foreign countries when our film units visit those places to film. He added that it is a misconception that Indians create disturbances in foreign countries while they are filming.
I feel it is a stereotype, and you cannot classify an entire country. We try to be as efficient as possible when we go abroad to shoot. I believe that each country welcomes our business and they appreciate our filming. This adds to their income and adds to the benefit of the citizens there, so I think we are very welcome wherever we go.
Siddharth Roy Kapur was interacting with the media when Producers Guild of India (PGI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Producers Guild of America (PGA) on Friday in Mumbai.
This partnership began to build a strong collaborative assistance system between the film, television and new media sectors of India and the United States of America.
Kapur expressed his opinion about the association. The state of New Jersey has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Producers Guild of India, which states that we will obtain more than 30 percent of incentives on what we spend in the United States. Thirty percent is the baseline and anything above that is also possible, according to certain criteria. This agreement will be beneficial for us because it makes filming in New Jersey more efficient. We filmed many movies in New Jersey and I think the film production fraternity will be better with this, he said.
Speaking about his next project, Kapur said: We have 'The sky is pink' Release on October 11. I am glad that people have appreciated the progress of the film, and we will begin the large-scale promotion of that film from Monday.
'The sky is pink' is directed by Shonali Bose and its stars Farhan Akhtar , Priyanka Chopra , Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf.
