Whether you just watched Baahubali or you remembered a sweet scene from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, don’t you feel like catching a glimpse of the real beauty from the locations where these fantastic movies were shot? If yes, then check out these famous Bollywood locations in India.
#1. Rohtang Pass – Jab We Met
The adventures of the bubbly “Geet” and the song “Yeh Ishq Hai” from Jab We Met will take you on a trip to the north of India and will definitely make you fall in love with the beautiful Himanchal mountains.
Even though during a video interview, Kareena Kapoor Khan admitted that it was during the shooting of this film that she and her previous lover, Shahid Kapoor, broke up, we cannot forget the lovely couple of the movie. So, if you want to experience the same thrills that Geet and Aditya experienced during their crazy quest for love, I suggest you head to Rohtang Pass.
Rohtang Pass, (it was named as such due to people trying to cross the pass during bad weather), is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.979m (13054ft) above the sea. Found in Manali, it serves as a gateway to the gorgeous Spiti valley, which is home to the popular Pin Valley National Park and numerous Buddhist Monasteries. Rohtang Pass is also known as one of the most spectacular natural delights in India.
Usually, in winters, the pass is inaccessible to visitors, but people are allowed to enter the pass in summer. And, trust me, you will be spellbound by the mesmerizing beauty of the region.
#2. Athirappilly Falls – Baahubali
Honestly, if you ask me, Baahubali is not a movie. No, it is a legend. It is the most beautiful legend that will continue to live in the hearts of all Indian cinema lovers—and talking about the epic movie, who can still remember that iconic moment when Shivudu is carrying that massive Shivling on his shoulders?
If you put aside the ripped physique of the eye-pleasing Praphas and focus on the lush scenery behind, you will realize that it is actually the famous waterfalls of Kerala, which is known as the Athirappilly Falls. Located in the Thrissur District, it is the largest waterfall in Kerala (it stands tall at 80 feet) and is also known as the Niagara of India.
Even though this waterfall is not so famous even among Indians, if you want to experience the world of Baahubali, this is one of the best places to explore.
#3. Pangong Tso Lake – 3 Idiots
The 2009 iconic movie and one of the best masterpieces of Rajkumar Hirani, 3 idiots, will always remain etched in the memory of Bollywood addicts. Whether it is the famous line “all is well” or the mantra for success by Rancho, who can forget this stunning movie? Absolutely no one!
If you want to relive this movie (especially the scene where Ranchhoddas Shyamaldas Chanchad, or if you prefer Rancho, gets beaten up by his best friends), why don’t you visit Pangong Tso Lake, which is situated in the Himalayas?
A mosaic of myriad shades of blue, this wonderful lake is situated at an elevation of 4,225 m (13,862 ft). Along with the breathtaking landscapes, the pristine lake can provide you with a lifetime photography tour.
Now, it is up to you if you want to wear a bridal outfit and visit the lake. But, if on top you decide to travel to the lake on a bike (with your bridal wear, of course), then I cannot guarantee your safety.
#4. Munnar – Chennai Express
Now, even if you have never heard the song “kashmir main tu kanyakumari”, you must have seen or at least heard about the movie “Chennai Express” (that is, if you are a true Bollywood lover or follower of the King of Bollywood or the King Khan).
Munnar, a beautiful town and hill station portrayed in the movie “Chennai Express”, is a sought destination for many Indian cinema travelers. Also known as the “Kashmir of South India”, this gorgeous place is located in the Idukki district. For all those who want to give this place a try, I recommend traveling there in a lovely Kanjeewaram silk saree.
