It doesn't matter whether you hail from Sangli or Shimla.
It doesn't matter if you have never seen Paris.
But as long as you remain faithful to watching Hindi movies, you will go far in life. And I mean as far as US or UK. Thanks to good old Hindi films, our home audience is well versed with the nook and
corners of Switzerland and Canada to confuse one with the other. That's not all. Thailand, France, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, you name it, we've seen it.
Earlier, foreign locales were simply an excuse to shoot songs against a gorgeous panorama. Next, a lot of films were extensively shot abroad to render them a sleek, shiny and uber cool feel. Recently,
filmmakers have begun writing scripts that are demand an overseas travel. Shooting abroad, especially, in exotic countries, undoubtedly gives the film an extra edge.
So park yourself on the favourite end of the couch and prepare yourself for a journey through the wonderful albeit relatively unexposed locations captured in Hindi films. No visa. No passport.
This one's on the house.
