3. Punjab (Sarbjit)


The biopic Sarbjit tells us the story of Sarbjit Singh, who was sentenced to death by Pakistan’s SUpreme Court and spent 22 years in prison fpr alleged terrorism and spying. Since Sarbjit was from Punjab, the movie takes us through several beautiful fields and locations of Punjab. Some scenes also show the famous Wagah Border which is a popular tourist attraction.

4. Gujarat, Rajasthan and Budapest (Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam)

Aish - Gujarat

Aishwarya’s entry scene in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam shows her walking in the desert with a kite in her hand. Right from this frame, Sanjay Lella Bhansali does a stellar  job portraying Gujarat the way it really is. There are several portions of the movie where you can see the sand dunes of Rajasthan. Most parts of the film were shot on the Gujarat-Rajasthan border. Remember the final scene with Aishwarya running to Ajay Devgan? That was shot on the Szechenyi Chain Bridge above the Danube. While the story shows the Asihwarya Rai-Ajay Devgan couple to be in Italy, the scenes were actually shot in Hungary’s Budapest.

5. Switzerland (Mohabbatein)

Aish-Lake Thun

Remember the song ‘Humko hamise chura lo’ with SRK and Aishwarya? It was shot at Lake Thun in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland. The Chopras are famous for bringing Switzerland to India on the big screen and this movie was a classic case in point.

Here’s wishing Aishwarya a very happy birthday. We hope to see many more places around the world in her movies.
