Srinagar : At least 300 destinations in Jammu and Kashmir have been selected for promoting film tourism in the Union Territory this year amid G-20 events forming the major attraction of the year and global attention, said a senior government official on Saturday.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of the inauguration of the first show of the newly released movie—‘Welcome To Kashmir’, directed by Tariq Bhat, at Inox cinema Srinagar, Commissioner Secretary Tourism, Syed Abid Rasheed said that last year 200 plus movies were shot in J&K, reported The Global Kashmir.

“This year our focus is to promote film tourism and for that, we have kept 300 destinations on the table of film producers and directors to choose any place for shooting,” he said.

He said many untouched destinations will be promoted.

He said some of the destinations are better than European locations.

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was recently in Kashmir to shoot for his next, Dunki, which will be directed by filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani.

Viral videos showed SRK shooting in Kashmir.

He said the G-20 event is a great opportunity for J&K to showcase its beauty.
