The authorities have zeroed-in on a 1,000-acre land for the proposed film city in Sector-21, just six km away from the upcoming international airport at Jewar. Also, the site lies along the Yamuna Expressway and is just 12 km away from the Eastern Peripheral Expressway, 70 km from Delhi, and 150 km from Agra.
The YEIDA officials had sent the proposal for the land to the state government on Sunday (20 September).
