“It marks the state’s foray into becoming a creative centre,” added Dr
“Besides animation, the centre will also be involved in merchandising,” he
“The centre is also in talks with several countries to screen its products,” said
“I want the centre to continue its production and not be turned into a white
elephant,” he added.
