Devgn has a blockbuster idea for A.P.

Quote:
Actor Ajay Devgn wants to put Amaravati, Andhra Pradesh’s up-and-coming capital on the frontlines of the global digital network with a media city - one that will feature film, HD TV and audio studios, digital post-production and media management services in the cloud.

The Bollywood star had a chat with Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on movies, entertainment and business that he described as “warm and delightful,” and the CM was equally enthusiastic on Twitter about their “lively” meeting on Tuesday. Mr. Devgn and his actor wife Kajol are to be the brand ambassadors of Andhra Pradesh tourism.

Mr. Devgn would lead the media city project, a delegate who accompanied him during the discussions with the Chief Minister said. A clutch of investors with connections to Dubai’s Media City, the model for the Amaravati idea, were on the delegation.

Mr. Naidu suggested that a full project proposal be prepared with the help of global consultants for evaluation, the delegate said.

In Mr. Devgn’s scheme, the fledgling AP capital would buzz with activity through a media hub run by a thriving and creative community of over 25,000 people working for some 3,000 regional and international companies.

The sprawling venture would be a tax-free, ultra modern smart city with attractive benefits to companies.

These would include easy licensing and business set-up services, and large urban regeneration projects.

Residential, retail, studio and office spaces would bring to the Media City the same attraction that similar developments in Copenhagen and Singapore have, the source close to the discussions said. “The idea is to have commercial buildings, boutiques, offices, retail spaces and hotels and provide an excellent working environment to companies of all sizes, from start-ups and SMEs to multinationals,” he added.

Spatially, it could host “intimate drinks receptions to large-scale festivals, feature vast outdoor spaces, water piazzas and theme parks.”

On the connectivity front, the proposal is to provide co-location and computing on-demand, data centres, connectivity and computing services to organisations at various scales, public or private, content creator or content distributor, all of it riding on fibre optic connectivity and live or file-based media networks.

Fairwood ties up with China’s Tongji varsity to bid for media city in AP

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...cle8557156.ece

Fairwood Group, a project management firm in the mobility, energy and urbanisation sectors, has tied up with Chinese technical university, Tongji, to bid for building new cities, including a media city in Andhra Pradesh.
“The media city, with 2,000 acres in the first phase, would include media and production houses from Bollywood and Hollywood,” Ranbir Saran Das, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Fairwood Group, told BusinessLine.
AP project

The consortium is now focussing on “configuring” the project in Andhra Pradesh, which will cost about $15-16 billion. The Chinese firms have lot of funds but have few projects to invest in, he added.
Tongji University, which is like IITs in China, according to Das, has tie-ups with 160 commercial companies, mostly State-owned, and has participated in projects, including the Maglev trains. Many of these firms are Fortune 500 companies, including Chinese Railways, China Hub, CCCI and China Construction, he added.
The consortium has funds to take the projects on construction finance on build-operate-transfer basis. Tongji Fairwood (TF) consortium is developing a city — Batumi — in Georgia, and has also developed new cities in China, Russia and Vietnam.
TF plans to create a new city with funding, expertise, design, execute and operate it as well. This can be done for large land owners — government or private.
Fairwood Group has also been trying to implement a pod car project, a personal rapid transport system project in almost 37-38 cities in India. The most recent project was the one in Dehradun, where the project had been tendered and approved by the State Cabinet and is in the procurement stage.
For past seven-eight years now, the company has also tried to take up projects in Amritsar and Gurgaon. The Amritsar project was cancelled as the new government during negotiations did not agree on the tariff norms for the pod car project.
“When governments change, you don’t know who to talk to. The newcomers are always suspicious of what the previous ones have done,” said Das. The biggest risk that you find in starting and completing a project is government not knowing how to approve, compare such projects with other transportation projects, said Das, whose company is also bidding for National Highway Authority of India’s project to connect Gurgaon with Manesar.

Daggubati Suresh plans media city at Amaravati

http://www.thehansindia.com/posts/in...aravati/406342

Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu is planning to develop nine cities in Amaravati. He held a review meeting with the CRDA authorities and one of them will be a media city.

On Friday, he had a meeting with film producer Daggubati Suresh on the media city proposal. While presenting his blueprint for development, Daggubati Suresh suggested that if one works hard for an year-and-a-half, one can built a beautiful Noida-like media city in Amaravati.

The AP Government has also made its stand clear on land allocation. If the works are speeded up, AP might have a media centre by 2020.

He informed that the State government already brought a policy to encourage film industry here. Stating that the government has been planning to organise a summit on film industry every year at Amaravati, he requested the Sony Pictures company to join in it.

He asked them to help in State government efforts in building a good platform to discuss on each and every latest development taking place in the cine industry, at Amarvati. The Minister said that if the film industry will be developed here in the State then the youth will get employment.

To make them as employable, the Minister asked Sony Pictures company delegates to provide skill development to the youth of Andhra Pradesh. Reacting to that, the delegates said that they would cooperate with the State government in this regard.
