Top Bollywood movies that inspire us to travel in India

Bollywood movies are always being an inspiration for many people from all walks of life. They provide you with a push which can make people do things they really wanted to do. Movies like Highway which amused us with the locations from Himachal Pradesh, Gujrat and Dil Chahta Hai with locations from Goa.

Let’s have a look at the movies that have inspired procrastinating travelers to explore exotic Indian destinations.


For a person who loves the road, Piku is a gentle reminder of the saying: the journey is more important than the destination. And often, the journey is the destination. Piku, her slightly eccentric father and driver-cum-transport business owner are on a roadtrip from New Delhi to Kolkata. What happens on the way is a bonding that no ordinary experience can create. This movie tells us that travelling together may well be the finest way of created the strongest bonds.


This movie was about the sense of freedom that travel can introduce one to.
As the name implies it was filmed mostly on the road and it does portray the concept of a road trip beautifully. The road trip covered Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Kashimir.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

The film was about the relationship of two characters Naina (Deepika Padukone) and Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor). Through the ups and downs of their lives audiences are taken through some stunning locations. Apart from the mountain trekking sequences in Himalayas, the film was also shot at various other locations including Udaipur and Gulmarg.

Chennai Express

Featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, this movie takes on a journey across India from the North to the South, enticing youwith beautiful visions of the countryside en route like Munnar, Goa and so on.


 You get to see the most exquisite and still highly unexplored locations of Darjeeling, It takes us through the hill-station's misty mornings, muddy slopes and beautifully fenced pathways. The clock tower, the famous Glenary's Cafe and the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. Barfi presents the hill town at its best. The nostalgia resulting from the small town feel of the movie might just make you look for your next long weekend and plan a trip to the nearest hill station.

Jab We Met

The entire idea of shooting the movie in some of the breathtaking locations is so essential to the plot of the movie that you fall in love with the movie, the characters and the locations all at the same time. Along with Shimla and Manali at Manali Castle in Himachal Pradesh, the movie also shows some amazing view of the Rohtang Pass which lies on the Manali – Leh Highway.

3 Idiots

3 Idiots is shot across several scenic locales across India. From Chail Palace in Shimla (shown as Javed Jaffrey's residence) to the campus of Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (depicted as the Imperial College of Engineering, Delhi), the film is peppered with realistic locations like Leh Manali Highway. Shot at the Pangong Lake, the climax flaunts Ladakh's daunting peaks and turquoise-blue lakes.

Dil Chahta Hai

Dil Chahta Hai is a trip down memory lane and perhaps the single biggest reason everyone in India has gone to Goa with his friends at some point or the other.
