Calcutta, May 24, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) One of the biggest studios in Kolkata is coming up in the heart of the city called Shri Narayan Studios (located near to IIM JOKA). The studio will be absolutely different and unique from the other studios because the studio has 15 sets that will include a discothèque, an office, a bungalow, a jail, a police station, a cafeteria, a hospital, a street, a modern apartment, a courtroom, a college, a temple etc.

The second phase will include a railway track, four floors reserved for T.V shoots, two chroma floors, a record 56 make up rooms that will also include rooms for junior artistes,1000 sq ft deluxe rooms and super deluxe rooms along with gym & sauna.

The third phase will include a lodge which will provide economical accommodation to outstation professionals for pre production and post production work.

This would be unique since there are no studios/floors dedicated just for jails/police stations or even a railway track.

This is the brainwave of Bharat Vijan , the owner of the studio who decided that demand was much more than supply when it came to studios in Kolkata as the number of films and T.V serials being made were 3 times more than previous years and so he decided to do this much on his part for Tollywood.He and his wife Ambika has great plans of expanding to other parts of the country as well and thus set up a chain of studios and they are already speaking to other people to get into tie-ups in other cities.

The studio is expected to be functional in 3-4 months and there would be a grand launch at that time whereby stars from Mumbai would be flown in.

A special puja was conducted and a small launch done by Tollywood star Dev (interview) on May 23rd, 2011. Another Tollywood star Rahul also turned up on the occasion. The official launch will take place 3-4 months from now.
