The Consul General of India in Bali has issued an invitation for Indian filmmakers to undertake film projects in Bali.

“I have coordinated with the Indian film industry to invite them to come to Bali and undertake shootings,” said the Indian Consul-General A.S. Takhi (shown).

While Takhi would not provide further detail, he hinted to NusaBali that the Island would soon play host to many Indian film stars,

Pointing to Indian-made film programs such as Mahabharata, Jodha Akbar, Hatim and Mahadewa – all of which are very popular with the Indonesian public, the Consul-General predicts that relations between India and Indonesia will only intensify in the future.

Takhi also said that members of the Indian film industry are also frequently choosing Bali as a holiday destination.

As part of the intensification of relations between India and Indonesia, on Monday, August 25, 2014, the Consulate-General hosted a tourism promotion dubbed “Incredible India” to which leading travel agents in Bali were invited.

Takhi is eager to see tourism visits in both direction increase over the coming years. He estimates 200,000 Indian will visit Bali in the current year, Meanwhile, 6 million foreign tourists visit India each year, approximately 33,000 of which are Indonesians.

Indian travelers coming to Indonesia can obtain a visa-on-arrival, while Indonesians wanting to visit India must apply for and obtain a visa before departing on their travels.

Direct Flights Needed

The Consul-General for India in Bali believes tourist numbers between his country and Indonesia will grow when direct flights between India and Bali are available. Adding, “I hope at some point Garuda Indonesia will begin flying to India because there are many tourist from Bali who want to visit our country.”
