While Indian directors and producers go across the globe to shoot and have exotic locations for their movies, here are some of the most hit films from Hollywood that were shot in India.
Slumdog Millionaire, Oscar-winning film that has the best soundtrack by AR Rahman was shot in slums of Mumbai. As this film had a significant focus on slums and poverty in India, there was considerable criticism that followed.
A Mighty Heart, as the film was based on Al Qaeda, and the plot had to be shot in Karachi, but it was restricted in Pakistan. Hence, the movie had to be shot in India. Angelina Jolie played the role efficiently very well.
