The movie is made by Indian house "PVP", while the executive producer from the Serbian side was "Clockwork Production".
General director of "Clockwork" production, Alek Conic, said that the great success of the movie "Oopri" puts Belgrade on the map of cities suitable for making movies and offers the chance to the city to start making millions off of this movie industry, like some cities in the surroundings.
-The making of the first Indian movie in Serbia was a great honor to us. We showed that we have movie experts that can work side by side with the greatest world productions, which i am very proud of. Belgrade and all city services met the needs of the filming in the shortest possible deadline, and our citizens showed the hospitality and great tolerance - said Conic.
Conic considers that "Oopri" opens the door for other Indian productions.
