Madhya Pradesh, the heartland state of India, which is also famously known as the Land of Sanchi and Khajuraho offers filmmakers one of the most diverse shooting experiences with many beautiful locations that were unexplored.

Zaid at a very early age decided to choose his path and make his city proud.

He wanted people to witness the beauty that Madhya Pradesh offers. Zaid , after a lot of efforts single-handedly turned Madhya Pradesh into one of the most preferred shooting destinations in India.
Zaid with the mission and vision to make Madhya Pradesh, one of the best shooting destinations in India, founded Zeal Z Entertainment services Private Limited in Year 2008. He was just an 18-year-old guy who wanted to turn all of the filmmaker's paths towards Madhya Pradesh. Filmmakers like Prakash Jha, Ashutosh Govarikar, Rajkumar Hir, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Anurag Basu, M Ratnam, S. Shankar, l Sharma, Neeraj Pandey, Karan Johar and many other directors-Producers started exploring the heart of India.
At the age when most youth indulge in worldly pleasures and into the path of entertaining themselves, he wanted to make a difference. Syed Zaid Ali and his company Zeal Entertainment turned out to be the biggest Film & Television Line Production Company in Central India with over 300 feature films, TV Shows, Commercials, Documentaries, etc. to date in Madhya Pradesh.
Some of the movies that have been produced by Syed Zaid Ali include Prakash Jha's Raajneeti, Aarakshan, Chakravyuh, Satyagraha, Jai Gangajal.

Syed Zaid Ali has also co-founded a platform called "The Film Hub" which has been working on the development of the Film Human Resources in Madhya Pradesh. He has successfully replaced 40 per cent of the crew, which earlier used to come from outside the state, and now he is eyeing to replace another 20 per cent in the coming 3 years, which will not only attract economic and fiscal benefits to the state but also increase the chances of employment in the state, thus, in turn, saving a lot of the producer's money.
