MUMBAI: National mutliplex chain Inox Leisure has forayed into film production and is ready with its debut venture titled Morning Walk.

Inox Motion Pictures director Alok Tandon said, "Morning Walk marks our foray into production and we have ensured that the film appeals to family audiences. Inox Motion Pictures was started with the endeavour to make films that offer quality entertainment to all. Inox has established itself as a strong player in the exhibition industry in a short span of time, we are confident of replicating the same success in production too."
The music of the film is by Jeet Gannguli and the songs have been sung by Ustad Rashid Khan, Shaan and Shreya Ghoshal.
