Among the most film-friendly states, Uttarakhand has received a special mention.
A ceremony to honor the hill state was held in New Delhi on Friday as part of the 68th annual national film awards.
In an official release here, Uttarakhand Film Vikas Parishad Director General Information Bansidhar Tiwari received the award.
He congratulated the people of the state and said it was a proud moment for them.
Uttarakhand will benefit from the award, Tiwari said, as it will promote the destination as a film production destination.
The Chief Minister has been actively promoting Uttarakhand as a film shooting destination over the past few years, he said.
Film shoot proposals are cleared quickly through a single window system, no charges are levied on shoots, and security is provided to film units throughout the entire shoot, Tiwari said.
Over the past few years, more than 150 films, television shows, and documentaries have been shot in the state, including The Kashmir Files, Batti Gul Meter Chalu, Kabir Singh, Kedarnath, Student of The Year, and Man Vs Wild, an adventure reality show on Discovery Channel with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bear Grylls.
