Published on : Monday, April 25, 2022
Once again, Manali is emerging as a go-to destination for the Bollywood industry for filming movie scenes in the lap of Himalayas, said the tourism stakeholders.
Actors Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna reached Manali on Thursday along with their film crew for the shooting of “Animal” movie, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga.
Ranbir and Rashmika arrived at Manali in a private chopper and are staying at the Baragarh resort for the shooting.
Nakul Khullar, Managing Director of Baragarh said, “The attraction of the film industry to Manali gives us hope that it is emerging once again as a major destination for shooting in Himachal. It is a good sign for the tourism industry of Kullu-Manali.”
“In the last two years during the Covid-19 outbreak, the tourism industry of Kullu-Manali had been reeling under severe recession. During that period, no movie shoot was done in this region by the Bollywood industry,” he said.
“In the past, several Bollywood movie scenes were filmed in Manali, which popularized this place among masses. The scenic views of Rohtang pass, Manali and Solang valley were shown in different movies,” Khullar added.
