Help us grow, northeast film industry urges government

 With less than 70 cinema halls in the northeastern region serving a population of 40 million - a little more than that of Poland - shoestring budgets and a handful of productions in most states, the film industry in the region is struggling for survival. Filmmakers are looking to the central government to bail them out and help them enter the mainstream.

Northeast coming on Bollywood radar?

It`s a region that has produced acclaimed directors like Jahnu Barua and Utpal Borpujari, singers like Bhupen Hazarika and actors like Danny Denzongpa and Adil Hussain, but sadly the northeast has never been on Bollywood`s radar.
