Ajay Devgn is another Bollywood actor who understands the importance of solar power in India, and also sees it as a business opportunity.
Some time back, he had collaborated with the Gujarat government to setup a state-of-the-art solar power park in Gujarat.
The solar park located in Charanaka, Patan District in Gujarat is now operational, and was setup as a joint venture between a corporate company (ROHA Group), Ajay Devgn and and producer Kumar Mangat. The ‘Son of Sardar’ star is closely associated with eh Roha group and had promoted their real Estate venture in Mumbai sometime back.
The Gujarat government offers several tax advantages to rich investors & companies that invest in solar and wind projects. It seems 80% of the project cost (basically almost the entire amount) can be claimed as depreciation.
Devgan had expressed his willingness to invest in Gujarat’s solar power projects, when he had met Chief
Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to promote the movie ‘Rajneeti’.
The ‘Singham’ star strongly believes that solar power is the future of industry and is also keen to use it in filmmaking, where solar powered generators can be used to provide electricity on the sets, thus saving power & electricity bills.
