Ramoji Film City is located around 20 km from Hyderabad in Rangareddi district. Spread over 2000 acres, it is a film-themed park combined with a studio, unabashedly modeled after Universal City.

Entrance to Ramoji

The city opened in 1996. It was conceived and developed by Ramoji Rao, media and film baron, whose film production house Usha Kiron Movies is a major producer of Indian films.

The city encompasses massive buildings, gardens and other sets suitable for filming movies. Fans of Indian movies will find many locations where scenes from their favourite films were shot. Inside the city are complete facilities for pre-production, production and post-production work on movies. In addition, there are theme parks, rides and other attractions, opportunities for shopping and dining. There are three hotels inside the city catering to various budgets. Visitors can easily spend a weekend or more with their families and not tire of the place.

Get in[edit]

The city is located off the NH9 highway connecting Hyderabad with Vijayawada, just after Hayath Nagar. If you are driving down from Hyderabad, the road is potholed, but motorable. There is adequate signage that will tell you how far Ramoji Film City is, and in any case it is difficult to miss the giant arch on the right announcing the entrance. Once inside, you need to park your car (parking: ₹10 for the entire day) and purchase tickets.
