The colourful world of Hindi Cinema with its timeless themes has been revisiting some outstanding places within India. Not only do these places significantly help the stories to move, but they also tempt the viewers to visit them. No wonders that once a place features in a successful Bollywood movie, people come up with guesthouses and other business ideas to cash on the increased tourist activities. Have a look at some of these places that were glorified by the top moviemakers of the film industry.
Probably the world’s only architectural icon of love, Taj Mahal in Agra starred in numerous Hindi movies over decades. The monument garnered huge limelight when the con couple of the hit movie ‘Bunty aur Babli’ indulges in its fake selling. The splendid beauty of this white marble Mughal structure has enhanced the look and feel of many famous Hindi songs.
Who can forget the college-going protagonists of the path breaking film ‘Rang De Basanti’ splashing in the water reservoir of Nahargarh Fort? Located close to the Pink City of Jaipur, the fort is known for the breathtaking views of the city and the Aravalli Hills. Tourists, especially youngsters, can be seen in huge flocks giving great time at this place. Companies like Indianhomestays.org regularly update their lists of accommodation in Jaipur near the fort for the convenience of the visitors.
The haunted palace of the psychological thriller ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ was no less than a star. Located near Jaipur, it is known as Chomu Palace which gained fame only after the movie was released. Today, it is a popular destination on inbound Jaipur itineraries and acts as a fortified palace hotel with enchanting elegance to its credit.
The unforgettable song ‘Tu Hi Re’ from the blockbuster movie ‘Bombay’ was shot at Bekal Fort. Watching the song’s video can allure anyone to visit the place at least once in a lifetime. Located in Kerala, the fort overlooks the mesmerizing beauty of the Arabian Sea and is constantly washed by the roaring sea waves. Monuments, broad steps, tunnels and the adjoining sea beach arrange for an experience that will linger in your memory forever.
Having watched the three friends of the multiplex hit ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ enjoying their break at Goa’s Chapora Fort, many college-going youth found it irresistible to visit this beautiful spot.
