What makes a good movie? A lot of elements are involved in making a picture that looks great on the screen. Our city and its beauty have added a lot of drama, glam and aesthetic to some amazing blockbusters and upcoming hits. Check out 10 movies shot that was shot in Udaipur
Devanand was portraying the character of a guide who takes around tourists for the cityscape. And a love story develops over the duration of the movie. You can see the old infrastructure near the Fatehsagar Lake clearly. It is a Tale of Times people.
The OLD lanes of the OLD city make us feel so nostalgic. We sure can do with a Guide like him to sing the verses of The Venice Of East.
“Pistols at dawn; it’s a little old-fashioned, isn’t it?” – Mr. Moore had us here. We thought Udaipur got famous now, but Mr. Bond was a die-hard fan of the city since 1983.
Well, he sure had fun shooting. The key locations included Jag Mandir and Taj Lake Palace.
The most fun song of the movie was shot at the Jagmandir Palace and it was grand.
We can observe a lot of royal touches that was given to the whole set-up. A few clips are of boats, heritage rooms and the walkway to the deck. Yaadein is stored in our memories Forever.
4. THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL
We are just not the favorite spot for Bollywood but we are the first choice for Hollywood as well. Hello World!
This movie was shot at an old property with the open backyard, gardens, and beautiful domes. The property (a Royal Palace – Ravla Khempur) has become so famous that the owners have put a signboard with the Film’s name and turned it into a tourist destination.
5. YEH JAAWANI HAI DEEWANI
We cannot even count the locations for this one. The movie featured all the colors that Udaipur holds. The sunset, the Palace, the mountain tops….. The directors missed out on nothing.
The famous big fat destination wedding happened out our Beautiful The Oberoi Udaivilas. Each and every part of the hotel was paid homage and we appreciated watching it on screen.
Now we all have our dream wedding venue thanks to, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani!
6. PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO
The “Satrangi” personality of Prem Dilwala was given shape at our Kumbhalgarh fort. Rajshri Productions chose this destination to complement the Royal Status that the script demanded.
We are totally digging their looks that blend extremely well with the backdrop of the fort.
7. GOLIYON KI RASLEELA, RAMLEELA
This overwhelmingly romantic yet tragic movie was mostly shot in Gujrat but a song sequence was shot for around 45 minutes in ice cold water.
Ranveer Singh is the Ultimate man for us to endure that temperature in our chilly Udaipur winters.
Also, now we know why he made that face!
The entire first half of this iconic debutant of Janhavi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar is shot in Udaipur.
Lake Pichola, Ahar Cenotaphs, Some parts of the Heritage hotels and lakeside hotels in the old city; all of them were seen in the film. Well, we fell in love with Udaipur all over again along with Parthavi and Madhu!
9. LOVE AAJ KAL 2
We are desperately waiting for this one to come out. Firstly we are awe-struck by the duo and cannot wait to watch the chemistry between Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan to uncover in Udaipur.
Recently Udaipur has turned out to be the ultimate destination for movie shoots and we are happy to welcome more and more…… and more!
10. ANGREZI MEDIUM
This is the sequel of Hindi Medium and the lead is played by Irrfan Khan. The shoot began in early April this year in the old streets of Udaipur.
Let’s hope our city turns out to be the lucky charm for this film to hit a blockbuster.
We are ready to welcome more of such buzz in the city. Are you?
