We often get to see many film directors from all different languages schedule their shoot in other countries than India. But, the hilarious joke is, international filmmakers are showing immense interest in shooting their flicks in India. Why we are not finding that beauty in India while other country filmmakers are exploring????
Actually, this was the scene until the 90's era, but now a drastic change has come in selecting the shoot places in India itself. Yes, many Indian directors are finding romantic and natural beauty places to direct their films in India only.
Being a nature lover, Dia finds filming in hills a "constant rejuvenation of the senses". She also urged filmmakers to explore "more of India and tell stories set in and shot in our land".
"Himachal Pradesh is one of the most beautiful states of India and one of the most beautiful mountain regions of the world. Wherever I looked, I only saw nature's perfection," Dia told to one of the news agencies.
Far away from the heat and the hustle bustle of the metropolis, filmmakers and web content creators are increasingly exploring the country's hilly regions to either capture the essence of stories or nature's bounty.
From Dia Mirza's upcoming web show Kaafir to Shahid Kapoor's much-awaited film Kabir Singh and Karan Wahi's latest released dating show Love Ok Please, such projects have been shot in Kinnaur, Mussoorie and Dharamsala respectively.
Rajeev Khandelwal's upcoming show Marzi and Netflix's recently released film "music Teacher were both directed in Shimla.
Actor Karan Singh Grover, who is coming up with the web show Boss, considers shooting in mountains a "heavenly experience". He shot in Shimla and Narkanda last month.
Mahesh Bhatt's Sadak 2 will reportedly be extensively shot in remote areas of Uttarakhand, apart from Mumbai.
But What's Making Hills A Favourite Shooting Location Among Filmmakers???
Siddharth Anand Kumar, producer of the film Hamid says - Sooting in Indian hill stations is economical and feasible.
Shimla-based line producer Dinesh Kashyap says - the hills attract filmmakers, there is a dire need for infrastructural development as far as film theatres for the audience and classes for the local talent is concerned.
So we hope that the further films that are yet to shoot will definitely choose any good location from India itself.
