New Delhi: November 30,2012

Action movies with special visual effects and 3D such as superman, spider man have now replaced action movies with action stars said Ashok Amritraj, Indian American film producer. Interacting with media today in Goa, he said digital technology has changed the way film is made and is distributed worldwide. Security of password protected digital copies of movies and distribution of such movies has in fact increased the cost of film making, he added.

Speaking about Indian Cinema, Amritraj said that he was glad to have reached the mark of producing 100 films in the centenary of Indian Cinema and added that presently 12 films are at different stages of production with his production company Hyde Park Entertainment. He said he wants to make Indian films and is looking forward to listen to scriptwriters from India and stated that it was not a conscious decision to stay away from Indian films.

Mike Pandey, President, IDPA said that they will be tying with Hyde Park Entertainment for an international co-production project. The Project will not be a documentary but a full-length, feature film, he added. Shankar Mohan, Festival Director and Bhuvan Lall, Film entrepreneur were also present.
