The guests were met by representatives of Aimanov Kazakhfilm studio. The name and date of the programme are kept in secret, and it was informed that the filming has been finished successfully.  

"Because of objective reasons, we cannot announce the name of the programme. But very soon it will be announced, and you will know on what channel to watch it. The filming has been carried out successfully in Kazakhstan, and it once again demonstrates that the professionalism level of the local filmmakers: producers and technical staff will be one of the main elements on which our long-term and successful partnership with foreign film and TV companies will be based. I am certain that this work will commence the attraction of foreign investment in Kazakhstan's film industry, as well as will open new possibilities to develop such sector as tourism. I am sure that once the programme is aired, the interest in Kazakhstan will increase," said Mukhamediuly.
