Our goal is to set up two fixed cinema screens and one moving cinema screen in Ladakh in the next 30 days.
Popular place for film shooting
Thupston Chuang, president of the Ladakh Buddhist Association, said, “Ladakh has always been a popular place for film shooting. Be it Bollywood, Hollywood or South Indian movies, all are shot here. In half a year we are away from most of the rest of the country, so it is very important for all of us to have a source of entertainment in the form of movies.
Pankaj Tripathi narrated a beautiful project
At the same time, actor Pankaj Tripathi said, ‘What a beautiful project. Cinema is reaching people in the interior of this country. For someone like me related to the film world, this film is a unique and different medium of exhibition. It’s absolutely unbelievable for something like this to happen in a grand place like Leh. I am shooting in Leh and I got to see amazing talent here.
