Shooting in foreign countries has become a trend in Bollywood entertainment industry. While Shah Rukh Khan's "Don 2" was shot in Berlin, Salman Khan's "Ek Tha Tiger" was shot in Cuba, Turkey and Ireland.

With this trend, Bollywood has shown us almost all exotic locales from across the world.

However, Kashmir - which is called India's own Switzerland - has always been a favourite location for many Bollywood films.

Latest reports suggest that Salman's upcoming film "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" will be shot in the Kashmir valley. If the reports are true, it will be Salman's first film that will be shot in this beautiful valley. Kareena Kapoor Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui will also join the film's crew.

Check out the popular Bollywood films shot in Kashmir below:


Vishal Bhardwaj's crime drama "Haider", which is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy "Hamlet", deals with the 1995 conflicts in Kashmir. The film is completely shot in Kashmir and has Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Tabu, Kay Kay Menon and Irrfan Khan in pivotal roles.
