London, Mumbai sign accord

Cities pledge co-operation

HONG KONG — London mayor Ken Livingstone met Indian filmmakers and superstar Amitabh Bachchan Wednesday on a visit to Mumbai.

Promo body Film London signed a city-to-city co-operation agreement with the Film and Television Guild of India at a ceremony that took place at the Whistling Woods Film School. Two orgs say that they will “work together to share ideas and best practice on domestic and international film production and promotion.”

Production crews from India will be able to take advantage of a new “Indian Productions Guide to London,” which offers practical advice and guidance on working in London and the U.K.

More than 40 Indian productions filmed in London last year including “Jhoom Barabar Jhoom” and hit “Chak de India.”

“We are happy that both sides are making efforts to ensure that both commercially and creatively this long-standing relationship is nurtured and built on,” Ronnie Screwvala, producer and head of the guild, said.
