AFTER almost 15 years of waiting, Durban film-maker Anant Singh has been given the go-ahead to get rolling with his studio, the eThekwini Film City.
The eThekwini Municipality has given Singh the green light to erect the R7billion project on the old Natal Command site, in spite of the SA National Defence Force owning a portion of the 21ha of prime land.

City manager Sipho Nzuza said while the municipality was actively pursuing the transfer of the whole of the land from the state back to the city, they had agreed to allow Singh to go ahead with the construction of his film studio.

Nzuza said Singh would occupy only a section of the land. “The other portion has not yet been transferred back to the municipality, there have been delays from the defence department.”
