Rumor: Harry Potter Attraction Part of Theme Park to be Built in India?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting an Indian company, the Reliance ADA Group, is currently in talks with Universal Studios to bring to the country of India a theme park, much like their Universal Orlando Resort in Florida, the home of the recently opened Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  The reported $1.5 billion venture, the paper reports, would feature a "variety of roller coasters and rides, shops with movie-related merchandise and nearby hotels," and include "content linked to popular Hollywood movies such as "Jaws," "E.T.," "Spider-Man" and the "Harry Potter" franchise."  The WSJ article continues:

Reliance's Big Entertainment subsidiary and Universal, a unit of General Electric Co.'s NBC Universal, still are discussing terms, but could reach a deal this year. One person familiar with the matter warned, however, that talks are at an early stage, and could yet break down.  
A Reliance spokesman said his company doesn't comment on market speculation. Universal declined to comment.
Reliance was drawn to Universal as a partner because in addition to its own properties, Universal acquires intellectual-property rights from other Hollywood studios, such as the "Harry Potter" series from Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros., according to a person familiar with the situation.
While this could very well be an exciting development, this news is stationed directly in the rumor category at this time.

Oh My God! This is spectacular. HP Theme Park in India is simply awesome excellent. It would be great to put it in India though I feel UK deserves one. But as an Indian i couldn’t ask for more than this. As for the no. of people there would be no doubt. India alone has tons of HP fans. Hope the rumor becomes true.

I hope that the theme park hits Great Britain first, but think of all the people in India who are fans! There would be a lot of profits involved in India.

i think that it is great to put a park in India! although to all those who want one in the UK…is there really enough space for something as large as a Harry Potter Theme Park?

Eh? India? Seriously? No offense but boy this is random. And i don’t want another HP park. I’d rather have one, i mean if there are Hogwarts all over the Earth it will turn into a fad.
