Amarinder made this assurance to Producer-Director J P Dutta, when the latter had called on the chief minister, along with the team of his next movie, 'Paltan'.
Dutta, who is currently shooting for the movie in Punjab, said film-makers were seriously constraint by the fact that multiple clearances were required while making defence-related movies.
This leads to major delays, often deterring film-makers from making such movies, said official release quoting Dutta.
After hearing Dutta's concern, Amarinder said he would raise the issue with the defence minister.
It was in the interest of the defence forces as such movies could help inspire youngsters to join the armed forces, Amarinder, an ex-Army official, said.
Dutta has given the film industry some of the best war dramas of all time, including the National Award winning "Border".
