From shooting films in India alone, filmmakers have gone a long way to explore new destinations. Yash Chopra was known to film at least one romantic song in Switzerland. In fact, even with his last film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, he wanted to head to Swiss lands with Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif but sadly passed away before he could do it. Karan Johar, too, shoots his films in the USA or London. His next release, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, is currently being filmed in London. Here are some films that have been/are being shot in different and newer places:
Budapest - Force 2
John Abraham is currently shooting for the sequel of his 2011 hit film, Force, in the capital of Hungary. The film also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Abhinay Deo has replaced Nishikant Kamat as the director. There is news of a delay in the shoot due to the migrant crisis in Europe.
