Gangtok: Sikkim government will set up a
film city here to tap its landscape and scenic spots for film
shooting and other entertainment programmes, Rural Management
and Development Department (RMDD) minister C B Karki said.

"A suitable land was being scouted for the purpose of
setting up the film city in Gangtok," he said at a function
near here on the occasion of the beginning of a Nepalese film
"Key Saino Ley Bolau".

The proposed film city will provide infrastructure
support for film shooting and other works related to film
production, but also generate employment for the local people,
Karki said.

RMDD Minister also asked the local people to take up
to the entertainment industry and produce films and other
programmes for the viewers in the state and outside and said
that the state government will provide necessary support to
such people.
