Though the largest film producing nation in the world, India lags behind the global standards in terms of quality of distribution and exhibition of films, ranking far behind in the list of the best movie making industries in the world. The lag is mainly due to the fragmentation of the industry on the basis of language and geographical barriers within the country. The 10 Billion USD 'Project Indywood' conceptualized by the globally acclaimed filmmaker Sohan Roy, envisages sweeping and revolutionary changes in the production, screening and marketing strategies as well as a business model of the Indian cinema. The successful completion of this five-year project is expected to elevate India to the pinnacle of the global film industry.
