“Dreamworks is looking for expanding their production facilities in India and sought partnership with Telangana state government for their long term plans. Minister K T Rama Rao has extended full support and cooperation in their endeavours,” it added.

Further, it said that the minister described the attributes of upcoming film city in Hyderabad which would be an ideal location for the future production facility of Dreamworks.

Dreamworks has plans to cater to Indian market and believe that Hyderabad is ideal location, given its talent pool and vibrant film industry, it further said.
