A documentary film about Bir Lachit Borphukan would be produced soon, announced Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Monday at Audio-Visual Hub’s opening ceremony in Guwahati’s Jyoti Chitraban Film Studio.

A ten crore rupee investment was made to build the Audio-Visual Hub. Chief Minister Sarma expressed his excitement to launch the Audio Visual Hub while speaking to the gathering during the opening ceremony.

Later, taking to Twitter, he wrote, “It will enable producers across Assam & other NE states to do all post-production activities of their films without going outside the region.”

“Filmmakers can add latest audio-visual effects to their films at subsidised rates at the hub,” added the chief minister.

According to CM Sarma, the challenge of choosing where to release movies has almost entirely vanished as a result of the rise of Over the Top (OTT) platforms.

He urged Assamese filmmakers to create bilingual movies. He also declared that a new theatre with a 1,500-person capacity would be built at Jyoti Chitraban.

In addition to this, a number of movie theatres, including Khanapara with a seating capacity of 5,000, will also be built throughout Guwahati. Additionally, he said that the ITA Machkhowa will be renovated.
