Bollywood has given us so much! From iconic dialogues, we use everywhere to lighten up the situation to amazing songs. One thing Bollywood has enriched us with is Wanderlust, and we can’t seem to get over it. Bollywood has inspired every millennial to travel and explore the world. It has made us aware of many beautiful locations one can visit, and every iconic location has been on our must-visit list.
Here are 10 must-visit locations which were made famous by Bollywood:
Chapora Fort, Goa- Dil Chahta Hai
Located in Northern Goa, Chapora Fort was neglected at first but then Dil Chahta Hai happened! Since the release of the movie, it has been a major tourist attraction in Goa. Everyone who visits Goa visits Chapora Fort. It is like the Goa cliché thing to visit the fort and click pictures the Bollywood style! And honestly, we love this cliché because it is a beautiful place and a perfect place to hang out with your friends.
Doraha Fort, Ludhiana- Rang De Basanti
This fort was definitely neglected until the release of Rang De Basanti. For a while it was known as the RDB fort, referring to the scene where all the boys in the movie run through the field of this fort and jump up as the Indian Air Force Jets zoom over them. It is a perfect spot to hang out with your pals and click really cool pictures with them!
Pangong Lake, Leh Ladhak- 3 Idiots
Pangong Lake, located in Leh Ladhak is one of the best places Bollywood has given us. It is surrounded by the majestic Himalayas & the view is breathtakingly beautiful! The movie 3 Idiots shot their climax scene at the lake. It was the scene where Kareena Kapoor rides a scooty to Aamir Khan and tells him “Naak Beech me Nahi Ati”.
It is like mini heaven on Earth.
Bandra Fort, Mumbai- Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Bandra Fort, located in Mumbai was a famous hangout place even before Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na was released but, the movie gave the place a new definition! It is the place where friends must hang out. Especially when you have a Jay or Aditi in your life, you definitely should take them to this place and maybe things will spark.
Chomu Palace, Jaipur- Bhool Bhulaiya
This is the place where all of it happened! Chomu Palace, located in Jaipur was where Vidya Balan turned into Maunjulika and gave us the chills. Chomu Palace is really beautiful and, apart from a rich history, it is famous for Manjulika & her dance moves.
Munnar Tea Plantation, Kerala- Chennai Express
A small town located in the Western Ghats of Kerela, Munnar is famous for its Tea Plantations. The scene where Deepika Padukone is running around the Tea Plantations and Shahrukh Khan is chasing her, yep! That’s our favourite in the movie. The place is a must visit if you love incredible tea & beautiful places.
Hidimba Devi Temple, Manali- Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani
Remember the famous shaadi debate scene between Naina & Bunny from the movie Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani? Yes, that happened at Hidimba Devi Temple in Manali! You must visit this scenic location but “Chalo Mandir k Piche” is definitely not allowed.
Agauda Fort, Goa- Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd., Dil Chahta Hai, Golmaal & So On
Aguada Fort, Goa has a special place in the heart of Bollywood filmmakers. The rocky fort has been pictured in many movies and loved by the audience. Who’s to blame? The scenic view of the fort is really mesmerising!
Rohtang Pass, Himachal Pradesh- Jab We Met
The melodious song Yeh Ishq Haye was shot at Rohtang Pass. It is 51 kms from Manali, hence if you visit this place, you can visit Hidimba Devi Temple as well!
