Another milestone for Celina Jetli… these days she is pretty ecstatic as the Egypt. Tourism board has made her the brand ambassador of Egypt from India. Taking time from her hectic schedule, Celina made a trip down to Cairo to see the dynamic metropolis, which is also the largest city in the Middle East.
Celina along with her team made a visit to the Media Production City on the outskirts of the city. It's what Film City is to Mumbai.
"They have state of the art studios with best sets which can be used for shoots. I think they are very suitable for our Indian films as the facilities including a hotel close by make it a good option," says Celina. His Excellency, The Ambassador of the Ar@b Republic said, "We want people to know that Egypt is not just about the Pyramids. We are working strategically on the tourism industry in Egpt. For its growth, we are offering easy visas, lower ticket rates, various tour packages etc. We hope to double the number of Indian tourists to Egpt by 2009. We are spending half a million U.S. Dollars in the next six months to encourage traffic between India and Egypt."
Celina also met up with few Egypti@n actors including actor Dr. Ezzat Abbou-Ouf who is the president of the Cairo International Film Festival. Celina promised them that she would be part of this year Cairo International Film Festival which will be held from November 27 th to to 7th December.
