Movies are a manifestation of our dreams. We live vicariously through our favourite heroes or villains and extract pleasure out of their happiness on screen. Travellers experience similar emotions when they see movie characters at a surreal location, wherever that is in the world. We have a sudden urge to visit the location without having too much idea on where or what the destination is.

Fret not, for today I will familiarise you with your favourite movie locations besides giving you the best hotel or homestay options to experience such places. So, here are 10 hotels and homestays to revisit your favourite Bollywood movies:

1. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Dilon mein betaabiyaan leke chal rahe ho toh, zinda ho tum...

If you still get goosebumps every time you hear this line of shaayari from this cult movie favourite, chances are you've really wanted to run in the climactic bull race with your friends by your side. The place in question is the beautiful Pamplona in Spain, and you must visit it at least once in your life.

Book the quaint homestay below to experience the city in all its glory.

You remember that memorable scene where Aamir Khan- and Sharman Joshi's characters are in a beer duel and Joshi falls down from the top of a wall right into a pond below? Well, it was shot at Nahargarh in Rajasthan, and it should be the next place you should visit with your friends.

Here's the homestay, which will be ideal for all of you.

4. Queen

The movie Queen was a brilliant testimony to the feeling of complete emancipation and coming-of-age amidst the historically patriarchal mindset that resides in our country. And the city of Amsterdam was the perfect location for this emancipation. Now it's time for you to visit the place and be free.

5. Tamasha

Imtiaz Ali is a magician when it comes to showcasing exotic locales in his movies, and Tamasha is no different. After watching this movie, I had an uncontrollable urge to just pack my bags and jet off to Corsica in France. Fortunately, the homestays here are just as beautiful. Check this out.

6. Highway

Continuing with the wealthy travel oeuvre of Imtiaz Ali, his inspiring Highway was all about getting out of your comfort zone and letting yourself be completely free. Although Kashmir has been showcased a lot already in our movies, but it was the village of Pahalgam, in particular, that took our hearts away in this movie.

Everyone remembers that romantic poolside sequence mid-way in Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani, where Ranbir Kapoor's character is hopelessly trying to woo Deepika Padukone's character. The surroundings are gorgeous, and you can actually book and stay inside that very hotel in Udaipur.

8. Dil Se..

Your Bollywood education is grossly incomplete if you haven't somehow watched Shah Rukh Khan gyrating on top of a train to a legendary Bollywood item number called Chhaiya Chhaiya. The song was filmed en route to Coonoor, a quaint hill station down south.

Book this beautiful homestay right away and log off from the real world.

9. 3 Idiots

Were you also as perplexed as I was when the mythical character of Ranchhodh Das turned out to be Javed Jaffery and not Aamir Khan in a particular scene in the blockbuster that was 3 Idiots? That was shot in a gorgeous Victorian hotel located in Shimla.

You can book a room here and revisit the hilarious movie.

10. Guru

Guru was probably the only Bollywood movie where the Bachchan scion was tolerable, at best. But what was more than merely tolerable was the sublime destination at which director Mani Ratnam shot some of the scenes, especially the song Barso Re where Aishwarya Rai is seen dancing by a waterfall. They are the Athirapally Waterfalls in Kerala and you can actually book a hotel right across them and cherish the view.
