Yamuna ghats in Mathura, ancient temples are very special for shooting. Tjanagari and the surrounding area is in TTZ. Only non-polluting industries can be set up here. Film City would be such an industry. It can be established here.

Land was acquired for the theme park

Other industries are closed, so the development will take place from Film City itself. During the previous SP government, land for the theme park was acquired here. This did not create a theme park. Film City can be made here. Agra is a city of cultural heritage. The atmosphere here is calm. The places are delightful. Film City can be built on the theme park land. There is wide land available here. The purpose for which this land was taken will also be fulfilled. There will also be an alternative to the industries of Agra, which have been lagging behind due to TTZ, as non-polluted industries.
