THE Indian Government is ready to collaborate with countries that want the Indian entertainment industry to grow.

And it would set up film training institutes in those countries, including Fiji, if interest is shown.

India's Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar revealed this to foreign journalists in Delhi last week.

Mr Javadekar is also India's Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Environment, Forest and Climate Change and Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs.

"We have the largest Indian diaspora and we are thinking of really collaborating with you and others who want the Indian entertainment industry to grow," he said.

"We want training institutes to be set up. It's not only in the Indian diaspora but people in other countries also love Indian cinema.

"This entertainment that was not thought of as a business has become a big business now.

"We want to collaborate with all of your countries.

"We are ready if your governments are ready to set up such training institutes. Entertainment brings the world together."

Mr Javadekar said there were 900 million mobile phones in India, adding it had also become a big business.

He said mobile companies were making money through ringtones and so were the music companies.
