Deepti Naval wants film studio in Shimla

Shimla: Veteran actor Deepti Naval, who inaugurated the International Film Festival of Shimla, has called for setting up a film school or film studio here.

The two-day film festival is organised by Himalayan Velocity with the support of Himachal Language, Art and Culture department at historic Gaiety Theatre.

“People from Bollywood descend on Shimla for shooting films, so why we should not have the facility of film studio,” Naval said.

As many as 46 documentaries, short films, animation and feature films will be screened in the competitive and non- competitive category and 35 film makers from 23 countries are participating in it.

“I am so excited to come to Shimla that there was no way that I could stay away from the festival.

“Why just once a year, it is a fantastic initiative and should get support from all quarters,” the actor said.
