Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government's industrial and film policies have paid dividends. While attracting investment, the moves have drawn film makers from Mumbai for shooting. This year alone as many as 12 movies have been extensively pictured in the state.

Some of them are big budget films with popular heroes like Akshay Kumar. The government headed by Akhilesh Yadav is gaga over these developments and has claimed that it has become a " film hub". The films include Jolly LLB 2 and Toilet : Ek Prem Katha.

Holy cities such as Varanasi and Mathura have become a big draw in this connection. Film shooting in the state has also helped some local talents including theatre artists . Incentives like entertainment tax exemption and cash assistance may be major reasons for their attraction.

In addition to film markers the state has lately drawn some big industrialists including Tatas. The state has recently signed an agreement with Patanjali Products headed by Yoga guru Baba Ramdev and some others.

The Yoga guru's company has proposed to invest about Rs 1600 crores in the state near Delhi which will provide direct and indirect employment to as many as 8000 people. The project christened food and herbal park will be commissioned in about a year. Foundation stone for the project has been already launched.

In addition, the government has signed Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with some other companies including electronic giant Samsung and HCL.
