India might not be the perfect Eutopian country but no one can deny that we live in a beautiful country that's rich in culture and full of colors. Not many years ago, our history and tradition were popular and known only amongst Indians. However, thanks to movies like Slumdog Millionaire and not to forget popular songs like Lean On and Hymn For The Weekend, India has become the vacation destination for not just common man but also celebrities across the world. Today, on National Tourism Day, let's look at some of the popular celebrities who visited our nation, not to perform, but only to experience its rich heritage and culture.
