This month the national capital of our country, Delhi or New Delhi celebrated its 100 year of coming into being. Delhi as a shooting destination used to pop up off and on within the Panavision of the film makers, but it rarely was a regular choice, though it is studded with amazing historicity. The picture started changing when the new generation of film makers, i.e. those who had grown up around Delhi used it as their reference point to shoot their films. Delhi, in particular during the last two three years has been a regular fixation of the filmmakers of the country. On the eve of this occasion it indeed is a perfect occasion to take a trip down memory lane with these films.
TERE GHAR KE SAAMNE: There still is nobody having wizardry to choose locations as Dev Anand showed it in TERE GHAR KE SAAMNE where he shot the song, 'Dil Ka Bhawar Kare Pukar' in historic Qutub Minar. Songs may have been shot in its vicinity but this is in all probability the first and last song to be shot inside the monument. It was a monumental effort, as this writer has scaled those stairs of Qutub Minar before it was closed for general public.
