The Prayag Film City, also known as the Midnapore Film City or Chandrakona Film City, is supposed to be a mega size integrated complex and a one-stop entertainment destination to be opened to the public in two phases at Chandrakona, West Midnapore, 165 km from Kolkata. Built by the Prayag Group, over an area of 2,700 acres and costing 10 billion (US$150 million), Prayag Film City is going to be the World’s Largest Film City[1] in terms of area as well as facilities.[2][3]

This is the first of its kind film-making arena in Asia. The complex's first phase, designed by the noted art director Nitish Roy, is opened to public from 15 April 2012.[4] The official brand ambassador of the film city complex is Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan, who is also West Bengal's tourism brand ambassador.[5][6]
