Behind the Scenes of Bollywood Filming in Iceland

By Iceland Review

You now have a chance to look behind the scenes from during the filming of the song ‘Gerua’ from the Bollywood film Dilwale, RÚV reports. The part of the film which includes the song was shot in South Iceland this fall.

A video offering a look behind the scenes has just been released on YouTube. It reveals two of India’s brightest film stars, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, enduring cold conditions, dressed for anything but the weather.

High heels are a rare sight in this landscape, not to mention a long, ballroom dress. Likewise, dancing at the top of a cliff is not the routine behavior of tourists.

In one scene, Shah Rukh Khan comes close to falling to his death by Sejalandsfoss waterfall, but is saved by Kajol.

In recent years, the Icelandic embassy in India has made an effort to attract Indian film makers to Iceland, not the least in order to introduce the country to India’s growing overseas tourism market.
