Shurooq chief wants Sharjah to bring Bollywood to the emirate | GulfNews.com

Shurooq chief wants Sharjah to bring Bollywood to the emirate | GulfNews.com:

"Sharjah should develop favourable policies and incentives to attract Bollywood film production to the emirate, the chief executive of Sharjah Investment & Development Authority (Shurooq) said on Tuesday.
Film production could be a major windfall for the emirate’s economy that aims to attract 10 million visitors a year by 2021, Shurooq chief executive Marwan Bin Jassim Al Sarkal told Gulf News in an interview at his offices in Sharjah. “It’s just a matter of tapping into the opportunities.”
Incentives to film in the United Arab Emirates do exist. Abu Dhabi offers a 30 per cent cash rebate on productions. That has helped Abu Dhabi lure big films, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Bourne Legacy. The idea is that major productions will inject cash into the local economy and bring tourists who watch the locations in the film."
