Disney on Sunday declined to say whether it wants to build a theme park in India, but denied a newspaper report in Hong Kong that it lobbied the Indian government on the matter.
The South China Morning Post reported Sunday that The Walt Disney Co. has asked Indian authorities for land for a park site.
"Disney has approached us for land outside Delhi to build a theme park. The company is very upbeat about the project. Its top officials are lobbying hard to wangle a very, very big plot," the Post quoted an unidentified official at India's Urban Development Ministry as saying.
