Pondicherry is known for tourism and we have seen this amazing town being featured in multiple movies. It is all set to get bigger with the plans that have been mapped out by the Department of Tourism.

100 acres of land has been acquired by the Dept of Tourism at Manapet, to develop a Special Tourism Zone. What is even more exciting is the fact that the project is all set to build an entertainment zone, film city (imagine a Ramoji film city in Pondicherry!), resort, convention center, beachfront development, parking area, other supporting infrastructure facilities and water sports activities! This is not only exciting news for tourism but also the people on Pondicherry because this means more job opportunities for youngsters!


There are more developments on this project with the National Institute of Ocean Technology approaching the government for 16 acres of land solely to feature an Oceanarium.

Aspiring talents be on the lookout because with this project in place, this location is all headed for the Glamour Charts! On the Film front, how many movies can you guess has already been shot at Pondicherry?
