Having undergone a spectacular profit making journey in its passenger and freight carrying business, Indian Railways is now turning to Bollywood to boost its coffers.
The Railways would provide the film-makers its vast infrastructure -- trains, platforms, stations -- for shooting and has in fact come up with a ‘Film Cell’ to felicitate its business with the tinsel industry.
"Earlier, the film-makers had to go through a lengthy process for getting permission to shoot in our sites. We have, now, set up a film cell to make the process of getting permission more prompt and timebound," Central Railways spokesperson A K Jain said from Mumbai.http:// www.indianrailwaysreservation.co.in, Railway reservation.
