In an attempt to turn Mumbai Film City into a world-class tourist spot, the Maharashtra government has decided to introduce a five-year renovation plan. The Dadasaheb Phalke Nagar in Goregaon, known as Film City is estimated to be revamped at the price of ₹2,550 crore.

In the meantime, the Maharashtra Film, Stage & Cultural Development Corporation (MFSCDC) has invited bids for the project. As per the reports, amongst the interested parties, there is Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), Anil Ambani's Reliance Big Entertainment (RBE), and Bhanot Infra Venture (BIV).

Along with this, MFSCDC has already prepared a master plan for the renovation project. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has included the cash-rich project under the 'Make in India' initiative.

Plans involve building 15 studios, 42 outdoor locations, eight village locations, post-production facilities, film training institutes, a museum, biodiversity parks, theme parks, food courts, hotels, and an amphitheater.
