Sharing more details about the programme, Mukesh Gupta, Chairman- Tourism Committee, PHDCCI, said, “Global Film Tourism Conclave is an excellent platform in promoting tourism to those locations where shooting for feature films take place. The locations, especially the ones abroad shown in the feature films attract millions of film buffs. As per a survey, Indians top the tourism charts for the number of tourists visiting the famous locations abroad. I am certain that our initiative will turn out to be highly fruitful in promoting and creating awareness about the untapped potential of Film Tourism in India.”
