Let's Have a Trip to World's Largest Film City
Updated: Apr 29, 2020
Recently I have visited the world's largest film studio complex, Ramoji Film City, located in Hyderabad, India. Ramoji film studio complex covers a distance of 2000 acres, with film pre-production, production, and post-production resources of over 500 settings, including hi-tech laboratories. It is the filmmakers’ first choice as it is a single-window, press-button facility that opens up an unlimited arena of creativity for every aspect of film production.
I have purchased a ticket of 'Carnival Star Experience' for ₹2349, from their official website. Ramoji film complex is located approximately 30 km from the city of Hyderabad. I reached there around 08.30 am. as the visitors were asked to get there by that time.
At first, I have been given a hamper consisting of a Souvenir Chocolate Box and a bottle of mineral water at Premium Lounge and then I was asked to get into the special AC Coach bus. We were given a trained guide with us. I don't really remember her name right now but the lady was a well behaved south Indian woman. The tour begins...
I was given -
Buffet Lunch (Veg. & Non-Veg.) in A/C Restaurant.
Fruit Drink Coupon ( Tetra Pack)
Evening Tea / Coffee – Eureka
Redemption Coupon worth Rs.75/- to redeem at any of the merchandise stores inside Ramoji Film City.
The film city has a capacity to accommodate close to 50 film units at the same time, Ramoji Film City offers a large number of film sets such as London Street, Hollywood sign, Japanese gardens, airport, hospital, etc., landscaped and buildings as well as laboratories.
You can also have a taste of being in the sets of SS Rajamouli's famous 'Baahubali'. Ramoji film complex authority has successfully preserved the entire set of the epic 'Baahubali'. Have a look...
There are 4 multicuisine restaurants in the film city complex, I was allowed to have my lunch in the best one (was included in my package), which is called 'Superstar'. They prepared some 20 to 25 dishes and trust me, they taste awesome. 'Superstar' is well decorated with the photographs of Indian movie stars all around its walls. The beautiful plates gave me a good filmy vibe with film reels printed around them.

One thing I was really impressed was that the whole place was clean and well maintained.
For children, 'Borasura', 'Fundastan' etc will be their favourite places to spend their time. Some of the other most interesting things we saw include a Japanese garden, green zoo, Mughal garden, intricately carved Kripalu caves, buddha statues, a large pool, artificial waterfalls, beautiful dancers, hospital setting, a railway station, an airport terminal, mosques, churches, temples, shopping plazas, palace interiors, rural complexes, urban dwellings, a winding highway, and European and US settings.

No wonder every year this film studio, which has got a place in Guinness Book Records as the world's largest film studio complex, attracts more than a million tourists from all over the world.
