South India’s Kurnool’s film tourism generates more revenues

Published on : Friday, April 26, 2019

South Indian most popular tourist attraction Kurnool which is known as the gateway to Rayalaseema, has become a favourite place for film producers to shoot their films as it offers a wide variety of choice. The proximity to Tollywood and the cost effective locations was the prime reason why producers zero in on Kurnool, said district tourism officer D. Venkateswarlu.

 

 

Not only film producers, even short film makers were also thronging these places seeking permission to shoot, Mr Venkateshwarlu said. He said that the geography of the district was so skewed that there were hillocks, water bodies, rivers, caves, flora and fauna, and expansive plains, ridges and bridges. The marquee Kondareddy Burz and the Banganapalli Nawab Bungalow where the film Arundhati was shot continues to attract film and serial producers.

 

 

Nallamala forest is also a great source for film shooting. The railway track between Nandyal and Giddalur has several locations. The film Kshana Kshanam featuring Venkatesh and Sridevi was shot in these locations, he said. Oravakallu Rock Garden has attained stardom ever since Bahubali became a super hit. Owk or Avuku is historically famous as the former zamindars trace their origins back to the 15th century when Bukka obtained the zamindari estate from the Raja of Vijayanagar. Avuku was founded in 1463 AD by the same Thimmaraju who built the owk tank, the son-in-law of King Sri Krishna Devaraya.
