(AP) The mayor of London has announced that two Indian films will be shot in his city next year as part of a bid to bring Bollywood to the British capital.


Boris Johnson said Thursday in Mumbai that Indian filmmakers should make London their movie set of choice.


He offered tax breaks, cooperation on clearing streets and spoke of the huge audiences that Indian films have in London.


Producer Sajid Nadiadwala says he will film two movies, including the latest in the hugely successful Housefull series in London.


Besides Housefull 3 starring Akshay Kumar, Nadiadwala will shoot Kick in London.


Johnson's visit is part of a series of trips he plans over the next 18 months to China, Brazil and the Middle East to attract investment after the successful London Olympics.
