‘Yeh Vidye Kashmir Ha, Jannat Ka Nazara’: Bollywood’s Trieste with Jannat

,

Srinagar: The love story between Kashmir and Bollywood began in 1949 when Raj Kapoor shot parts of his film ‘Barsaat’ in the valley, bringing its beauty to a wider audience. Since then Kashmir Valley has become the center of attention of many film producers.

In the 60s and 70s, several Bollywood films, including ‘Kashmir Ki Kali’ (1964), ‘Jab Jab Phool Khule’ (1965), and ‘Bobby’ (1973), were shot in Kashmir. The songs from these films remained favorites for generations to come.

Not only this, there are many places in Kashmir that are known by movie names or characters, like the historical place ‘Bobby Hut’ in Gulmarg, where the song from the super hit movie ‘Bobby’ – ‘Hum Tum Ek Kam Main…’ . was filmed, or ‘Beetaab Wadi’ in Pahalgam where Sunny Deol-Amrita Singh starrer ‘Beetaab’ was shot.

This beautiful relationship between Kashmir and Bollywood lasted until Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s film ‘Khamoosh’ in 1985, after which the unpleasant situation caused by terrorism in the region put a temporary end to this love story.

Bollywood returned to the valley after 2000, when films like ‘Mission Kashmir’ and ‘Haider’ were shot in Kashmir.

This relationship is also unique because this time the subject of these films was not the beauty of the valley but Kashmir itself.

Over the years, several popular Bollywood films and web series have been shot in Kashmir, with many local actors also featured. Notable among them are Mir Sarwar, who starred in films like “Kaiseri” and “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, and Zaira Wasim, who starred in Aamir Khan’s “Dangal” and “Secret Superstar”.

This year, Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha inaugurated cinema halls in Srinagar, Shopian and Pulwama districts, giving a boost to film screenings in the region. Also, a new film policy has been implemented in Kashmir, besides Sinha announcing the opening of cinema halls in every district of UT.

With all this, the aspirations of local filmmakers and actors have also been boosted. (IANS)
