MUMBAI: Egypt’s Indian brand ambassador Celina Jaitely will be attending the Cairo International Film Festival.
Recently, Jaitely along with her team also visited the Media Production City on the outskirts of Cairo. “They have state of the art studios with best sets, which can be used for shoots. I think they are very suitable for our Indian films as the facilities including a hotel close by make it a good option,” she said.
The Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt Dr Mohammed Higazy said, “We want people to know that Egypt is not just about the Pyramids. We are working strategically on the tourism industry in Egypt. For its growth, we are offering easy visas, lower ticket rates, various tour packages etc. We hope to double the number of Indian tourists to Egypt by 2009. We are spending half a million US dollars in the next six months to encourage traffic between India and Egypt.”
Jaitely also met up with few Egyptian actors including actor Dr Ezzat Abbou-Ouf who is the president of the Cairo International Film Festival. The Festival will be held from 27 November – 7 December.
