What comes to your mind when we say 'Switzerland'? Does it strike you of the movie Dilwale Dulhaniye Le Jayenge? Well if it did, then it is good. Asking why? It was because of this movie that Switzerland started becoming the hotspot for many a Bollywood movie. But what one needs to know is that Switzerlans was exposed way back in 1964 for Raj Kapoor's Sangam. Here is a peek in to a few movies that was shot in Switzerland. Well, for starters Yash Chopra yet again who produced and directed 'Faasle' that released in 1985, shot many scenes in Switzerland.In Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayaenge ofcourse one can see the beautiful, snow-clad alps. We can definitely say that the legacy is continuing. Adding to this list are the movies 'Mohabattein' and 'Dil to pagal hai' which has portions shot in the lovely Swiss. What started being Yash Chopra's favourite, we can say continues a favourite of the Yash raj film clan too. Well even few years back, 'Jara Gunguna Lein Chalo 'from the movie Laaga Chunri Mein Daag starring Rani Mukherjee and Abhishek Bachhan was shot in Switzerland. Well to top it all, Ranbir starrer Bacchna Ae Haseeno also has scenes shot here.
Moving to the Kapoor clan, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna and Sridevi sizzled in the movie Chandi, isn't it? This hit movie was yet again shot at one of the exotic locations in Switzerland.
In addition to Raj Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor too did his bit of Switzerland Romance. Have you heard the song 'Akele Akele Kahan Jaa Rahe Ho' from the movie evening in Paris? Shammi Kapoor wonderfully romances his lady love in this movie Sharmila Tagore.
What has remained exotic about the place is still a mystery. But ofcourse, Switzerland doesn not fail to attract Bollywood in all possible ways. Isn't there dime a reason now for you to plan your vacation to Switzerland ? :-)
