A City Of Entertainment
Entrepreneur-cum-film producer Ramoji Rao owns Ramoji Film City. It is tastefully landscaped, meticulously maintained, exquisitely designed with palace-like edifices, temples, beautiful rock figurines, shopping arcades, railway station, airport and all that a producer can dream of. All a producer has to do is, enter the film city with the script and the cast and leave with the completed film reel.
Right at the entrance one will find two three-star hotels called 'Tara' and 'Sitara', where you will be given a royal treatment as a visitor. If one goes further there are various gardens ranging from Japanese to Tea gardens, temples sans idols, schools that turned into police stations at the drop of the board, colleges that double up as Havelis and airports whose rear entrance is used for the hospital shot and side for church. Sets like the airport and the hospital are astonishing.
There is also a south Indian village, a north Indian village, sky scrapers, slums, Ajanta and Ellora caves, a bazaar, a multi-purpose building, a pool and artificial waterfalls and many more. Hawa Mahal, along the lines of the Golconda Fort, is on a hilltop from where you can have a bird's eye view of the whole place.
With some luck one is likely to find his or her favorite star shooting in one of the sets for some film. Apart from Tara and Sitara, there are also mobile canteens, hotels, and fast food centers within the film city. This wonderful looking place is famous for its sets and can make your day splendid.
