More than travel magazines, Bollywood movies have made certain places a part of our travel bucket list. Every shot needs to be aesthetically pleasing, and hence, according to the plot, the production crew needs to decide the most suitable location. Many destinations become tourist destinations due to the beauty depicted in Bollywood movies. Let’s not wait anymore and dive in because Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
Travel Bucket List Incited By
Corsica – Tamasha
Apart from the beauty of Corsica, what made this place our dream destination? Well, it’s because what happens in Corsica stays in Corsica. It’s a hidden island between the borders of France and Italy, and a hidden gem is supposed to hide some secret jaw-dropping scenery.
Switzerland – Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
We all know that Kashmir is called mini Switzerland. But what will happen if you are shown actual Switzerland? Magic! Unless you don’t miss your train just like Raj and Simran. The place will amaze you with deep Alpine lakes and grassy valleys. Whether day or night, you will always be ready to groove on “Zara Sa Jhum Lu Main.”
Goa – Dear Zindagi
We have all played Kabaddi. But have you ever played Kabaddi with the ocean? Then Goa is the place. Goa is famous for its beaches, and now we have a unique reason to visit its beaches, to enjoy a fun game just like Kaira and Jug. Another thing that made Goa super cool because of the movie is the bliss of cycling on the road between coconut trees.
Leh Ladakh – Jab Tak Hai Jaan
Remember that beautiful shot where Samar, aka SRK, was shown driving Royal Enfield. That scene was shot near Pangong Lake. Moreover, shooting in this location can also be seen in movies such as Sanam Re and 3 Idiots. This place has something about it which asks us to pack our bags and visit.
Udaipur – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
The city of lakes has been calling us since we all have watched Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. It has even become a wedding destination for many people. The place is rich in art, culture, and food that you cannot resist visiting. It’s a wholesome place for those in love with art and who are artistically living their lives.
Darjeeling – Barfi
The movie begins with the song “Ala Barfi,” which takes us to witness the various scenic beauty of Darjeeling. Further in scenes while Barfi is cycling doing his usual activities, we can see Andrew’s Church in the backdrop which made the shot ecstatic. The steam engine on the streets of Darjeeling is another compelling sight.
Manali – Jab We Met
Remember the lyrics like “Yeh Ishq Haye Baithe Bithaye Jannat Dikahye,” and Manali felt like Jannat (Heaven) in the movie. Aditya and Geet driving over the icy mountains in an open Jeep is one of those sights we can never forget. The culturally rich market and the folk dance made the mountains even more fascinating.
Ooty – Golmaal Again
We all know that Golmaal Again didn’t come to our expectations, but the location chosen for the movie was no less than a fairyland. The movie’s songs gave us an amazing vibe because of the location, filled with lush green hills and pastures.
Munnar – Chennai Express
The “Kashmir Main Tu Kanyakumari” song got all its incredible shots at Munnar. Though the complete movie is aesthetic, there’s a separate fan base for the vibe of this particular song. Who wouldn’t love to walk among the tea plantations when we are freshened just by a few glimpses of it?
Dalhousie – Lootera
A period romance set in the 1950s on the land of Dalhousie made the place even more enchanting. The immense snow in the movie feels somewhat like Narnia. Though Dalhousie has traveled many years since the 1950s, we can still witness its natural beauty in the lap of nature.
