Host Info: Mrs.Debjani Basu

We are offering you a brand new concept blended with Films & Tourism at Purulia covering picturesque places where famous films were created by eminent directors with some traditional spots of tourist interest. We have identified nearly 20 films (Both Tollywood, Bollywood & films from abroad) and the offbeat spots where these films were created.


Who are we?  At CINE STEPs we present niche tours to all those who want to explore the hidden paradise of Bengal that too related with film shooting. Through our Cine Tours, we hope to deliver you a memorable Purulia. Let’s take a Cine Step.

Why us? We are researching on old & new films and we are both nature lovers, as well as location hunters who have spent most of our lives seeking offbeat places of North East Indian territory. Navigating the outdoor locations of filmy India is something that runs in our veins. This FilmTourism workshop is enjoyable and we are trying to spread this concept to all.


Explore Purulia as you’ve never seen her before, with beautiful lakes & dams, green hills, pristine ambiance on a hilltop, rough & undulating terrains, rural village life and much more. Experience Bengal with a new vision of FILMTOURISM.

Block Printing @ Ajrakhpur, Kachchh, Gujarat

Youtube movie link:

My First visit to Ajrakhpur was amazing. I will certainly visit Ajrakhpur again very soon. According to me the immense variety of textile with the artistic traditions of dying & printing process of Kutch area will certainly touch your mind. The Ajrakhpur block printing of the Kutch region is an example of Gujarat’s pride and considered as an essential part of any Indian woman’s collection. Beautiful geographic patterns and other designs of the artisans that too printed manually with wooden blocks on cloth by unusual natural colours (extracted from mineral, vegetable etc) are some of the most important factors of the popularity of Ajrakhpur Block Printing. They say some of the designs are thousands of years old. You can visit Ajrakhpur, experience a new vision and also can buy as per your choice. My best wishes for the skilled artisans of Ajrakhpur.
