Kishtwar (Jammu and Kashmir): Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday promised to bring back "Bollywood to Kashmir".

"I have to bring back Bollywood to Kashmir," said Modi while addressing a BJP rally in this Jammu and Kashmir town.

Noting that the fastest growing industry in the world today is tourism industry, he said: "I have to bring back tourism to the state and I have to make J&K the ultimate tourist destination in the world."

A number of movies have been shot in Kashmir, including "Kashmir Ki Kali", "Mission Kashmir" and more recently "Haider".

The five-phase assembly elections begin in the state Nov 25.
