On this Friendship Day, we are going to highlight those places and we are sure, you will love to visit those with your friends too, once the pandemic is over. Have a look below!
1. St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai
This college has to be the favourite college of Bollywood as most of the college scenes are shot here.

We know you would have guessed the movie by now! It’s none other than the most recent movie which redefined modern friendship, ‘Ye Jawani hai Deewani’. Remember the scene where Bunny tries to explain to Naina about his concept of marriage and the whole fight that follows afterwards? Yes, the scene has been shot around this temple which lies at the foot of the Himalayas.

The movie has also captured the Bandra-Worli Sea Link, where the whole gang was seen having fun but guess what? The sea link which appears today was not built at that time!
6. India Gate
India Gate has, no doubt, been taken in so many films while showing the lives in Delhi but the one shown in ‘Rang De Basanti’ truly wakens the vibes of friendship as all the friends were seen having fun and going on long drives and passing India Gate often. Delhites, we are sure it’s also your favorite place to hang out with friends!
7. Marine Drive
As India Gate is for Delhi, Marine Drive is for Mumbai. This place always has a special mention in the movies for showing lives in Mumbai. ‘Wake up Sid’, which was centred in Mumbai, has the initial scenes capturing Marine Drive where Sid and his friends can be seen living life carefree and to its fullest around Marine Drive. However, later in the movie, the friendship between Sid and Aisha has also been captured at this place. Truly, a buddy place!
