This Independence Day, discover the destinations featured in these Bollywood patriotic movies

Here is a list of locations where these patriotic films were shot

Published at

Independence Day holds various sentiments for the 1.3 billion Indians. Some celebrate the pride of autonomy, while some celebrate the victory of freedom over a century of struggle. This year, while most of us are confined to our homes with celebrations shifting online, ignite the feeling of patriotism by watching these evergreen patriotic movies that will make you feel proud as Indians. And while you let the patriotic fervour take over, immersing in these movies might bring many destinations to mind for when travel restrictions are lifted and it’s safe to travel again.

From an Indian spy movie set in the beautiful valley of Kashmir to an NRI returning home to the historic town of Wai, Booking.com, one of world’s leading digital travel platforms, presents a list of destinations inspired from these movies for travellers to add to their wish list for when the time is right to do so.

Raazi (Kashmir)

Set in the backdrop of picturesque mountains of Kashmir, the Alia Bhatt-starrer Raazi revolves around the life of an Indian spy, Sehmat, who is married to a Pakistani officer inorder to transfer classified information. The movie portrays Sehmat’s nationalism and her sacrifice for her country. Set against the picturesque background of Kashmir, the movie takes the audience to the breath-taking snow-capped mountains and lush-green valleys of the city.

Swades (Wai, Maharashtra)

The SRK-starrer classic, Swades, is the story of a man who leaves his job at NASA and returns to India to bring about a meaningful change. A film that often invokes the feeling of oneness belonging to our country, Swades was extensively shot in a place called Wai, situated at the foothills of Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar. Located on the banks of Krishna River, Wai is a town of prominence and resonates the glorious years of the Peshwas. With beautiful temples and scenic views, Wai makes for a hidden gem of Maharashtra portrayed in the movie. The famous boat ride in the movie that was also the poster of the film was shot at Dhom Dam, which is a beautiful dam on Krishna river near Wai.

Rang De Basanti (Jaipur)

Reconnect with India’s freedom story with Rang De Basanti as you travel through the journey of six young Indians who sacrificed their lives while fighting for their friend who taught an important lesson to society. The film explored parallels between how India would change if today’s youth were as driven as those in pre-independent India. The song and the youth anthem of 2006, ‘Khalbali’ from this patriotic movie, was shot in the majestic Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur. Built in around 1734 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, the then king of Jaipur, the fort was constructed as a place of retreat. The fort is situated at the edge of the Aravalli Hills and overlooks the charismatic city of Jaipur.

Airlift (Bhuj, Gujarat)

Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift is a story of a Kuwait-based businessman, who carries out the heroic evacuation project of Indians based in Kuwait and brings them safely back to India during the invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. While the film starts with Ranjit Katyal’s (played by Akshay Kumar) life in Kuwait, it portrays the feeling of belongingness to one’s own country as the evacuated people successfully arrive in India after moments of immense struggle. To recreate and depict Kuwait during 1990, the film was shot in the desserts of Bhuj. Based in the Kutch district of Gujarat, Bhuj is known to depict the cultural and structural instances from the Indus Valley civilization and the invasion of Alexander the Great. The place is also host to the celebrated ‘White Rann of Kutch festival’.

Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl (Lucknow)

Based on the real story of Flight Lieutenant Gunjan Saxena and how she makes history in her journey from aspiring aviator to India’s first Indian female combat pilot in the Kargil War, this recently released movie is extensively shot in Lucknow. This beautiful city, famed for its Nawabi era fitness and amazing food, is a unique mix of the ancient and the modern culture. It is home to extraordinary monuments depicting a fascinating blend of ancient colonial and oriental architecture. Immerse in the cultural heritage and richness of Lucknow as you watch Gunjan Saxena this Independence Day.

Sometimes it takes 14 phere to get a happily ever after, or does it? Zee Studios announces its next production, a social comedy, 14 Phere, directed by Devanshu Singh and written by Manoj Kalwani, slated to release on July 9, 2021.

Actors Vikrant Massey and Kriti Kharbanda will be pairing up for the first time in this quirky, contemporary social comedy that promises to be a complete entertainer—a roller coaster ride with ‘Sanjay’ and ‘Aditi’ on their adventures and misadventures.

Actor Vikrant Massey said, “The script hit me hard, the ideology of the film and the main thought behind the story is something that has been with me, individually. When I heard the script, it felt like two halves becoming one, I would have been a fool to let go of this film. It’s a beautiful story that speaks of very pertinent things relevant in today’s times. I’m really looking forward to working with Kriti. I’ve seen her films and she is a very good actor! Can’t wait to get started!

Actor Kriti Kharbanda said, “14 Phere is a socially relevant, promising, fun script on a kick-ass subject. From the moment I heard the script, I found myself extremely excited! It’s led by a great team headed by Devanshu, whose previous work I admire. I absolutely love the character of Aditi that I will be portraying in this film—I think I’ve become Aditi already! I’m looking forward to sharing screen space with Vikrant who’s a terrific actor. Super excited to get started in bringing Aditi to life!

Commenting on the announcement, Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios said, “14 Phere is an important film that beautifully captures the heart and heartland of India—it’s a quirky, contemporary, emotional and relevant film which also highlights how weddings, most often, happen between two families, not just two people. We needed a fresh, new pairing and we couldn’t have been happier to have Vikrant and Kriti on board! We are currently working on pre-production, and prepping to go on floor in November.”

Director Devanshu Singh said, “14 Phere is a full-blown family entertainer. A contemporary social comedy with elements of romance, comedy of errors, lots of emotions, adventures-misadventures and celebrations. It’s full of surprises. I’m super thrilled to be working with Vikrant and Kriti, they are supremely talented yet so real and fun to work with. The best part is that they believe in the script as much as I do. Can’t wait to go on floors!

Produced by Zee Studios, 14 Phere, starring Vikrant Massey & Kriti Kharbanda, directed by Devanshu Singh, is slated to release on July 9, 2021.

A modern take on adultery, relationships and broken marriages, the iconic show Saans was a breath of fresh air for the television audiences in the 90s.

It revolved around the happily married Priya Kapoor (Neena Gupta) and Gautam Kapoor (Kanwaljit Singh) and their teenage kids Akul and Mithi. However, things change when Gautam befriends Manisha (Kavita Kapoor), who later falls for him. He leaves Priya, only to find Manisha is tough to handle. Priya struggles to find her identity and stands up for herself eventually.

Neena Gupta took to social media to express her excitement and asked her fans to revisit and enjoy the old memories. In a video posted on Instagram, she said, “Everyone can now watch my show ‘Saans’ on Tata Sky from Monday- Friday at 9.00pm. Those who have watched it before, can watch it again and those who didn’t get a chance to watch it, can start watching it now.”
