Israel and India sign film collaboration agreements E-mail

India’s Union cabinet of ministers has approved a film co-production agreement with Israel that was signed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in January, during Netanyahu’s visit to India.

Films co-produced under the treaty will qualify as national productions and be eligible for production and post-production incentives in both countries.

In 2017, the Bollywood film Drive, produced by Dharma Productions with funding from the Israel Prime Minister’s Office and the Tourism Ministry, was shot in Israel. Directed by Tarun Mansukhani, and starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez, the film will be released later this year.

According to a statement from India’s press information bureau, “The signing of the pact will lead to mutual exchange of art and culture, and create goodwill and better understanding among the people of both the countries as well as various aspects of film-making. It will also help in the generation of employment among artistic, technical as well as non-technical personnel.”
