I had an amazing Swiss vacation last month. Apart of amazing white mountains & lash green valleys, what made more impact was Bollywoods presence at each corner. People standing in queue to take a selfie with SRK & Kajol’s DDLJ fame poster, that simply shows how crazy people still are for that movie. Well, I am not a big fan of Bollywood movies anymore but I am definitely a big Bollywood fan tourist. It gives an immense pleasure to experience same places that created the magic on silver screen. It was fun to visit all DDLJ locations, but it was even more fun to visit Simmba locations.. I must say Rohit Shetty has a good taste in spot selection :):
Bollywood’s integral love for Switzerland has been a main reason of making it one of the most popular destination for Indian tourists. In the past two decades, more than 200 Bollywood films have been filmed here from Sangam in 60’s, to Chandani in 80’s to Darr & DDJL in 90’s, to Mohabbatein, Bachna Ae Haseeno in 20' s. The latest block buster Simba in 2019!
Here is my attempt to filmy radical Self guided Bollywood trail in Switzerland! I have compiled our route in this video, I hope you get inspired and visit even more filmy location and share your experiences :) Dont forget to recreate those firmly moments !
#1. Zweisimmen, Switzerland: This is apparently very favourite station in films, Do you remember Ash & Abhishek's funny dancing in Dhahi Akasher Prem Ke? If not I am sure you remember Simbran missing the train in DDLJ :)
