The thing about movies is that they take you into a whole other world. In fact, one of the strongest factors that contribute to a film’s charm is the locations that are used as backdrops. From Harry Potter‘s Hogwarts to K3G’s humongous mansion, the locations were part of the movies and their magic.

So, we’ve curated some of the most stunning shoot locations that movies have had for you to scroll through and up your film know-how. Here, take a look:

1. American Hotel Amsterdam – The Fault In Our Stars

The movie actually used The American Hotel in Amsterdam as The Hotel De Filosoof. So, nope if you were wondering whether the location was fictional, it absolutely wasn’t.

4. Waddesdon Manor, England – Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham

The grand Raichand haveli that we saw in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham was actually the Waddesdon Manor in England. But did they really expect us to believe it was somewhere in Chandni Chowk, for real?

9. Keventer’s, Darjeeling – Barfi

The fact that they used this cute branch of Keventer’s in Darjeeling, in Barfi speaks volumes about the thought that went into creating the ambience and mood for the film. If this milkshake joint doesn’t scream Barfi then I don’t know what is.

One of Mumbai’s most iconic pizza spots, Pizza by the Bay, was the same restaurant where we saw Aisha go with her boss to listen to Jazz. And even a scene in Rock On was filmed at Pizza by the Bay.
