We Indians feed our self with two source of entertainment. One is cricket and the other one is definitely Bollywood movies. Like Gaurav in Fan movie said, ‘Star nahi, Duniya hai wo meri’. That’s the level of love we Indians have for Bollywood. No matter at what level we can relate to our desi movies plot but we surely connect to the places where the film has been shot. Whether it was Sholay’s Ramgarh or DDLJ’s iconic railway station, we all wanted once in our life to be present at that place and see those locations in real.
Following is the list of places where the famous Bollywood scenes were shot:
Agrasen Ki Baoli, Delhi
Agrasen Ki Baoli just few kilometers away from Connaught Place, Delhi is the place where many iconic scenes from Bollywood have been shot. Most recent was from movie Sultan where Salman Khan was shown training with brick loads. It is the famous Bollywood location where Aamir Khan sitting with carrots in PK movie and Bol Na Halke Halke song from Jhoom Barabar Jhoom movie was filmed.
Hadi Rani Ki Baori, Rajasthan
Remember the well in which Aamir Khan and his friends take a plunge in song Apni to Pathshala from movie Rang De Basanti? Hadi Rani Ki Baori is that well, situated in Todaraiswai town of Rajasthan. It is a step well built in 12th century CE where famous movie like Paheli starring Rani Mukherjee was also filmed.
Pangong Tso, Ladakh
Who hasn’t seen 3 Idiots multiple times? We all remember scene where Kareena Kapoor was driving yellow scooter looking all stunning in her lehenga. Pangong Tso is the famous Bollywood location used in that last iconic and yet hilarious scene of 3 Idiots where we all discovered who Phunsuk Wangdu actually was. Other major film been shot here is Jab Tak Hai Jaan in which Anushka Sharma was filmed for opening shots of the movie.
Nizamuddin Auliya Dargah, Delhi
You can have a peaceful evening with soulful qawwalis being performed every Thursday night at Nizammudin Auliya Dragah located in the heart of Delhi. Serenity of Dargah has been used tremendously in movie Rockstar starring Ranbir Kapoor. It is one of the most famous Bollywood locations among youth because of vibrant tint of culture attached to it.
Chittorgarh Fort, Mewar
Chittorgarh Fort is a place which needs no introduction. We all are familiar with this mesmerizing fort standing tall on the land of royals – Rajasthan. This magnetic location has been used by Bollywood very beautifully. You have seen Chittorgarh fort in movies like Yeh Jawaani Hai deewani and Padmaavat in which it was glorified perfectly.
Fort Chapora, Goa
Dil Chahta Hai was the movie which made Goa Plans a goal for youngsters. We still struggle with our Goa plans and that’s a different kick of our lives. But yet we want to go and enjoy our life to the fullest in Goa with our friends. Chapora Fort has some stunning views of adjoining Vagator Beach which you can enjoy other than just exploring this famous Bollywood location.
Varanasi, Uttar Pardesh
Raanjhana took our heart with two things- one was Dhanush’s innocence and UP Wala Swag, other was magnetic Banaras Ki Galiyaan. Varanasi also called Banaras has been beautifully used in movies like Raanjhana screening the real beauty of this quintessential city. You can enjoy evening sitting on tranquil Ghats of Varanasi.
