PUNE: Guardian Corporation has made a foray into media and entertainment businesses with the establishment of Guardian Media and Entertainment.

The Pune-based group also has a presence in real estate, retail, lifestyle sport, and travel and tourism business segments.

“It’s been over two decades since India became a part of the global economy, but we still lack good entertainment destinations. We want to contribute in filling this gap by offering the design and development services for amusement parks, theme parks and museums,” Manish Sabade, Chairman, Guardian Corporation said.

Guardian has executed projects worth Rs 20 crore in India and abroad, while those worth Rs 150 crore are at various stages of development, he added. The projects operational include a 3-acre theme park at Sajjangad near Satara on the life of saint Ramdas Swami that gives an insight into his life through the use of multimedia, sound, light, and theatre.

The company has also created real-size replicas of some caves of Ajanta at nearby Fardapur village for tourists who are unable to see the Ajanta caves as only a few are allowed inside the caves after their declaration as a World Heritage Site.

It is now setting up a Dinosaur Park, India’s first giant screen theatre, and one of country’s largest indoor theme parks with over 23 attractions.
