Bollywood came to Scotland

Visit Scotland is launching a campaign to encourage Bollywood film fans to come to Scotland.

Over the past two decades there have been 23 Indian films that have used Scottish locations.

A new map showing the films and their locations will be made available to the Indian travel trade to give to the estimated 34,000 visitors who are expected to come to Scotland over the next year.

The Bollywood industry, based in the Indian city of Mumbai, is famous for its lavish productions and extravagant song and dance routines.

The first Bollywood films to shoot in Scotland were screen legend Dev Anand's Main Solah Baras Ki (Sweet Sixteen) and Karan Johar's Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (Something Happens in My Heart) in 1998.

They featured Scottish landmarks including Edinburgh's Royal Mile, Eilean Donan Castle in the Highlands and Crossraguel Abbey in Ayrshire.
