“Our youngsters have seen a ray of hope with the atmosphere of terror and bloodshed long gone. We want to provide ample opportunities to the youth to move ahead and excel in a peaceful atmosphere,” Singh said.
Referring to the inauguration of multipurpose cinema halls in south Kashmir’s Pulwama and Shopian districts on Sunday, he said their opening may also in future lead to the youth to show their talent, produce films, and watch them on the same big screens.
“We have a long list of filmmakers who want to shoot in Jammu and Kashmir, engage local talent, and show the beauty of J&K to the outside world. Kishtwar is one such scenic spot which we would like to showcase,” he said.
The DGP said Samradhi Sen, an eight-year-old resident of Kishtwar, has become a national icon in the field of singing after participating in ‘Chhoona Hai Aasman’, a talent-hunt show initiated by the police.
“Today she is taking part in every national event and we stand with her,” he said, adding “we will support anyone who has a talent and wants to make it big in his or her own field.”
