Movies are made for entertainment. But some movies capture the excitement of travelling as the characters journey to different places, and we do too with them.

Travel to some amazing places as seen in Bollywood and be enthralled as the movies travel around the world.

Bollywood movies have come a long way from saree billowing songs in Switzerland to exploring new places. Picardy is sure a novel idea in Befikre, or Jordan in Rockstar.

Here is a list of destinations that recent films captured with their cameras.

An island between the countries of Italy and France, the region has the history of being the birthplace for Napolean Bonaparte.
