The news establishes India’s strong production ties around the world, having already signed co-production treaties with countries such as Germany, Poland, New Zealand and the UK.

It’s also hoped the treaty will allow Indian filmmakers to take advantage of Canada’s production skillset, as well as increasing the number of Canadian projects filming in India.
