About Jyoti Chitraban

Jyoti Chitraban, named after Assamese film pioneer Rupknowar Jyoti Prasad Agarwala, is a premier film studio of the entire North-Eastern region.

Established on a beautiful hillock of Narakasur, Kahilipara, Guwahati, Jyoti Chitraban started its journey on January 17th, 1968, with a view to mitigating various difficulties faced by the film-producing entrepreneurs of the North-east.

The film studio in Jyoti Chitraban was later converted into a registered society in 1973 inducting both official and non-official (film personalities) as members of the Jyoti Chitraban Film Studio Society.

The only film studio of its kind in the entire North-East, Jyoti Chitraban since its inception has been extending laudable and indispensable technical support for the growth and sustenance of the film and television industry of the region for nearly 50 years.
