An island film studio. What’s not to like, right? Maldives has reportedly offered an island to Bollywood to be turned into a film studio. According to reports, Maldives Tourism Minister Thoyyib Mohamed is hopeful the project will materialise by next year. He was, however, quoted in other reports saying the Bollywood suggestion was just a concept. With parts of the Hrithik Roshan movie Kites shot in the Maldives, the island resort seems keen on a lot more of tinsel town’s magic dust. Maldives, the lowest country on the planet, became quite the climate change sensation following news that it would go under by the next century because of rising sea levels. It sure could do with Bollywood immortality.
