Bollywood filmmakers Boney Kapoor, KC Bokadia, production houses Maddock Films, and music company T-Series are among the participants in the development of the Uttar Pradesh Government’s ambitious International Film City project in Yamuna Expressway Region, the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), said on January 5.


The Authority noted that January 5 was the last date for submission of bids in the International Film City project. The technical bid was opened at 3 pm wherein four bids were received for the first phase of the project that is being established on 230 acres.


YEIDA has been given the responsibility to execute the project and develop the Film City along the Yamuna Expressway in sector 21, which is in proximity to the upcoming Noida International Airport in Jewar.


According to YEIDA officials, a consortium of Maddock Films and Cape of Good Films LLP, music company T-Series and film production firms of Bollywood filmmakers Boney Kapoor and KC Bokadia have applied for development of the Film City.


“The bids from Supersonic Technobuild Private Limited (consortium of Maddock Films, Cape of Good Films LLP and others), Bayview Projects LLP (Boney Kapoor and others), Super Cassettes Industries Private Limited (T series) and Lions Films Private Limited (KC Bokadia and others) were received in the third global tender. These four bids will now be technically tested at the authority level, after which action will be taken to open the financial bids as per rules,” the Authority said in a statement on January 5.


Officials said that by the end of January, out of these four firms, one will be selected as the concessionaire for the development of the Film City project.
