History of Film City Mumbai
Film City (or Dadasaheb Phalke Chitra Nagari) is an integrated film studio near Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Goregaon East, in Mumbai, India. It is home to many recording rooms, gardens, theatres, and other facilities used for many Marathi and Bollywood films.
The state government built it in 1977 to offer concessions and facilities to the film industry. The plan for Film City was prepared and executed under the guidance of V. Shantaram.
It was renamed Dadasaheb Phalke Chitra Nagari in 2001 in memory of India’s first producer-director-screenwriter, Dadasaheb Phalke, who is considered the father of the Indian film industry.
It has been used as the filming location for most Bollywood films. You can shoot there in many locations, such as permanent sets, courts, prisons, lakes, mountains, fountains, and villages.
Film City covers over 520 acres in the suburbs of Mumbai. There are approximately 42 outdoor shooting locations and 16 studios.
