Subhash Ghai to open Whistling Woods International in Haryana

Whistling Woods International (WWI) is all set to branch out and set up its campus at Jhajjar in Haryana. This will be the institute's second facility in India, after its campus at Filmcity in Mumbai.

During his recent visit to Mumbai, Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Chief Minister, Haryana along with his delegation of high-level government officials visited the institute and interacted with Mr. Subhash Ghai and the team at WWI. Mr. Hooda was impressed with the filmmaking techniques, the course structure and the state-of-the-art facilities offered at WWI and described the institute as an excellent place for students to learn from the best. He said that Mr. Ghai was marching ahead of time as he felt strongly that the real competition for resources would be in the field of education and skill development; and that the areas and states blessed with quality education would be the real leaders in the time to come. He was delighted that a campus with this vision would be available to the students of Haryana and adjoining states.

Speaking on the occasion and complimenting Mr. Hooda for his visionary approach in the field of education and other areas, Mr. Subhash Ghai, Founder and Chairman, Whistling Woods International said, "Haryana has made tremendous progress under the leadership of Mr. Hooda and the whole of India is appreciating it. Haryana is a state with huge potential, with young budding talent. This institute will give an opportunity to these young aspiring film-makers to chase their dreams."

The institute is being set up in a 20-acre sprawling campus at Jhajjar in Haryana and will provide world-class film, television, animation and media education. The integrated model will also include space for shooting floors, studios and various commercial complexes. With a planned investment on the project of over Rs.100 crore, the institute campus will be ready within three years. This institute will cater to the whole of North India, including Punjab, Rajasthan, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Jammu & Kashmir besides Haryana.
