Bollywood has influenced so much around us that there is no denying the fact that it is indeed a trendsetter. Be it the leads strolling through luscious meadows of Switzerland or the iconic locations where songs are shot, Bollywood is the best form of globetrotting that can be possible sitting in front of a screen. Well, we decode some amazing iconic Bollywood locations that were pivotal to these movies and are equally magical when visited in real lives.
1. Agrasen Ki Baoli, Delhi
Remember the personal hiding space of in Delhi? The place is actually a quaint step well (Baoli) near Connaught Place. Beware, as the place is listed as haunted by the capital!
2. Hadi Rani Ki Baori, Rajasthan
Remember the mesmerizing step well where Rani Mukerji has her first encounter with a ghostly presence in the movie Paheli? The place is Hadi Rani Ki Baori in Toda Rai Singh, Rajasthan. The place is rumored to be the haunted as well.
3. Chain Bridge, Budapest
Yes, this is the bridge where Sameer (Salman Khan) shouts ‘Nandini’ in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. It is also the same bridge where the last scene of the movie where Nandini (Aishwarya) accepts Vanraj (Ajay Devgan) and chooses him over Sameer!
4. Pangong Tso, Ladakh
The last scene of 3 Idiots, where we find Pia (Kareena Kapoor) finally riding her scooter to propose Rancho (Aamir Khan) is Pangong Lake in Ladakh. Almost 60% of this lake lies in China. This spot was also shot in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, at the very beginning, when Anushka Sharma jumps into the lake to take a dip!
5. Chittorgarh Fort, Mewar
The world heritage site became a beautiful backdrop for an iconic scene in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani where Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor) enjoys a sunset with Naina (Deepika Padukone). We hope to see the same in the upcoming movie, Padmaavat, as this is the actual place where Rani Padmini of Chittor performed Jauhar.
6. DC-3 Plane Wreck, Iceland
‘Gerua’ song from the movie ‘Dilwale‘ was shot at one of the most haunting and iconic sites in Iceland. In 1973 a DC-3 plane was forced to land at the Black Sand Beach and since then the wreckage of the plane remains a tourist spot!
7. Fort Chapora, Goa

8. Waddesdon Manor, England
The Raichand House in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum is Waddesdon Manor in the city of Buckinghamshire. The mansion is completely spectacular and there is no way this cannot be on your bucket list if you ever visit England.
