Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said here Wednesday that he wants to turn Bhopal into a "capital of arts and artists".
"I wish Bhopal soon becomes a capital of arts and artists and I will make every effort to make it so," Chouhan said.
He was speaking after giving the clap for the muhurat shot of Sunny Deol-starrer `Singh Saheb the Great` at the People`s University here.
The chief minister welcomed the whole film unit, including its director Anil Sharma and the lead cast, including Sunny Deol, Amrita Rao and Amisha Patel here.
More and more filmmakers should come forward to shoot their films in the state, which will create job opportunities and so that local artists can also prove their talent, he said.
"I will soon bring in a new policy to provide facilities to those film-makers who shoot their movies in Madhya Pradesh," Chouhan added.
