It gives an immense pleasure to watch Bollywood films shot in exotic locations all around the world, like saree draped actresses in Switzerland or a bunch of friends letting pranks loose in Spain, just like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. But, nothing means nothing beats the thrill of spotting India our beautiful India in Hollywood movies. Let’s check out some profound movies that were completely or partly shot in India.

Eat, Pray Love – Delhi and Pataudi: Densely revolving around India, this romantic, drama, comedy featuring Julia Roberts was shot in parts of Pataudi and Delhi. On her (Julia’s) search for enlightenment, she ends up going to an ashram in India. It’s must watch for those who want a glimpse into the power of prayers in India.

The Darjeeling Limited – Jodhpur: It is comedy-drama movie about spiritual-self-discovery of three brothers who reunite on the train while travelling to Darjeeling. The director of the movie – Wes Anderson, said his inspiration for this movie was Satyajit Ray and different other documentaries on India. Apart from few locations from Jodhpur, one can also spot Irrfan Khan in the movie.

Jobs – Delhi and Vrindavan: A biological based on drama in which Steve Jobs played by Ashton Kutcher has few parts which were shot in Delhi and Vrindavan. It gave a backdrop of Job’s 1974 to India. Just don’t get surprised when you spot locations around Chandni Chowk or Red Fort.

Life of Pi – Kerala and Puducherry: It is a survival story of Patel (Pi) who survives a defeat and shares a lifeboat with a Tiger. The movie was shot in several places in India including Puducherry and Kerala. Tabu and Irrfan Khan played a vital role in the movie.

Outsourced – Mumbai: This movie was not only shot in India but also set up on what happens when a foreigner gets outsourced to India. A major part of the films was shot in Mumbai.

So how many known places could you spot in your favourite ‘firangi’ films?
