This is a bit of challenge to find. There is a 'road' through the desert but often times difficult to follow. But it the drive to get there and finding it is an adventure. Can drive a regular car in the dry season.

It is very difficult to reach the film city because there are no sign boards or route maps available. The destination itself is like ruins. There is not much maintenance done. The gate keeper will charge you as per his desire to enter the destination
