LAHORE: With “Dunki,” starring Shah rukh Khan, having filmed there, Saudi Arabia’s Neom has attracted its first Bollywood shoot.
A new sound stage in the area will also be used to film the 200-episode-per-year Saudi soap opera “Exceptional,” which is produced by MBC.
Wayne Borg, managing director of Neom, made the announcement at the second Red Sea International Film Festival in Jeddah on Sunday.
In the last 18 months, Neom has played host to about 26 productions, including the Rupert Wyatt- and Anthony Mackie-starrer “Desert Warrior.”
The Bollywood superstar had previously thanked the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Art and Culture for facilitating and allowing the production team to shoot the movie.
