But there are certain low budget films or serials whose shooting can be carried out at a single place, and that place is specifically made for the film production with all the required facilities available. It may be those are not low budget films but may be of the type that doesn't require much outdoor shooting. Once such place is Ramoji Film City located in the Hyderabad city of India.
