No theme park in India now, Disney clarifies after Vizag report
The California-based amusement park said this after reports saying the first Disneyland unit in India was likely to come up in Vishakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh.
In a statement, the company said: " We continually look for opportunities to grow our business and while India is an attractive market, we currently have no plans for a theme park here. Disney India continues to build its brands through four core businesses, namely Media Networks (one of the largest TV networks with eight popular channels targeting kids, youth and families), Interactive (one of the leading players in the digital and games segment), Studios (one of the leading film producers and distributors in the country) and Consumer Products (one of the most prominent players in the Merchandising and Licensing industry)."
"Our businesses are dedicated to creatively developing, marketing and distributing the best branded entertainment for Indian consumers across ages."
Currently, Disneyland is in California, Florida, Tokyo, Paris and Honk Kong. Construction of Disneyland Shanghai is underway and will be opened in 2016.
