Spirit of the Nizam Warriors

Nizam's warriors: The Film City was allegedly built on the battlefields where the Nizam's warriors died.

It is said that when they built the movie city, the builders kept the area unchanged, not removing a single tree or mountain to preserve the spiritual peace of the place. Even though they didn't cut down any of the trees, it looks like there's something wrong with the place.

The film city is said to have been built on the land where the Nizam of Hyderabad fought and died. It is said that the spirits of soldiers who died in these battles still wander there restlessly.

The Nizam of Huderabad was the ruler of the state of Hyderabad until it became part of the Maratha Confederacy after its defeat in the 18th century.
