Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh government has reserved a piece of land in the state capital for the proposed film city, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said.

"The state has lot of opportunities for the production of films and the government has reserved a land for the construction of a film city in Bhopal," he told reporters after launching the opening shot of the film `Gali-Gali Mein Chor` being produced by Rumi Jaffery, who hails from Bhopal.
