HYDERABAD: Giving credence to the government’s ambitious proposal to set up a film city in Rachakonda area of Nalgonda district, chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will conduct an aerial survey of the hilly terrain on Monday.

The Rachakonda forest area is spread over 30,000 acres on border of Nalgonda and Ranga Reddy districts. He would be accompanied by education minister G Jagadish Reddy, transport minister P Mahendar Reddy and chief secretary Rajiv Sarma. 

Known for its grandeur, Rachakonda is a hit with film fraternity as several films’ shooting had taken place there. This hillock area had been capital of Telangana in 14th century AD when Recherla Singama Nayak, who emerged as ruler of entire Telangana in the post-Kakatiya period.

The area which is 50 km from Hyderabad is dotted with temples and forts and used to attract many visitors earlier. The intention of the government is to make the 2,000-acre proposed Cinema City on a par with Hollywood, making it the nerve centre of filmmaking in the country. However, huge tracts of land in the area which was allotted to the Union defence ministry in united AP to set up a field firing range could come as a dampener to these grandiose plans.  

The CM had carried out an aerial survey in Mucherla in Ranga Reddy district to identify location for establishing a Pharma City in 4,000 acres.
