Bollywood film shot in Dublin

Locations around Dublin are to appear in a Bollywood film 'Ek Tha Tiger', which will be released in 24 countries worldwide, reaching an audience of over 100 million people.

The first time a major Bollywood production was shot in Ireland, it was filmed in Dublin last autumn and is due to hit the screens on 15 August.

A teaser video and song, Banjaara, provide a sneak preview of the film, showing Trinity College, Temple Bar and Grafton Street.

It also features some members of An Garda Síochána, Kilkenny hurlers and a Grafton Street mime artist.

The film, which means ‘Once There Was A Tiger’, portrays Dublin as a modern, fun and vibrant city, rich in history and culture.

Tourism Ireland worked with the Irish Film Board to secure the film for Ireland and with Dublin City Council and other agencies to help facilitate filming in the city.

Niall Gibbons, Tourism Ireland’s chief executive, said: “Bollywood is deep-rooted in the psyche of most Indians and the films have a considerable influence on Indian travellers when they are deciding on their holiday destination.

"We are confident that the footage shot in Dublin will help whet appetites and create a curiosity among Indians to come and visit the places where the colourful ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ was shot.”
