As you may (or may not) know, I am finishing up my Tourism and Travel degree at Algonquin College. This is my last semester, and it promises to be a very busy one. I was not particularly inspired to write a post for today, so I decided to research the country that we had to study for Geography this week: India.

Obviously, there have been a lot (understatement) of Bollywood movies filmed in India. But several Hollywood movies also have filmed here. Here is a list of a few of them, organized by city, to make it simpler to follow.


Zero Dark Thirty, although set in Pakistan, was actually filmed in Chandigarh.


The Dark Knight Rises filmed the escape scene at the Mehrangarh Fort in this city.

The Darjeeling Unlimited filmed a few scenes in Jodhpur.


Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol filmed the climactic ending in Bora Bazaar.

Slumdog Millionaire ranged across various areas of Mumbai.

A Mighty Heart, another movie set in Pakistan, had some scenes shot in Mumbai.


The Bourne Supremacy starts out on a beach in Goa, and quickly moves into a high-speed chase through the city.


Octopussy involved the infiltration of a palace, the location of which is in Udaipur.

The Darjeeling Unlimited was predominantly shot in this city, including the airport.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel filmed almost exclusively in Udaipur and Jaipur.
