Circus and Padmavat
Dadasaheb Phalke Chitranagari is known by the entire film industry as ‘Film City’. Borivali Film City, located in Goregaon East, Mumbai, has been built on 500 acres of land between Sanjay Gandhi National Park and Aarey Forest. There is a big studio like Prime Focus in this film city, in which along with shooting, work is also done on post production. Most of the films and serials in Mumbai are shot in this film city. The biggest reason behind this is the security of Dadasaheb Phalke Chitranagari and the privacy available here.
Apart from the tribal community living in Aarey, no one is allowed to enter Film City without identity card. Tourists coming here are also not allowed to go inside any set and it is the responsibility of the guide present with them to ensure these rules. As soon as you enter the gate of Film City, you see a huge open space on the right side, which is known as Joker Maidan. From Padmavat to Circus, most of the films have been shot here.
