The Songs shot in Shimla

Recall the song "Tu Kahan Yeh Bataa" from the film Tere Ghar Ke Samne starring Dev Anand and Nutan. Dev Anand is looking for Nutan in the quiet night with mist all over. The picturisation of that song made the audience glued to their seats. This song was shot in Shimla which made Shimla a hot destination for the Bollywood filmmakers. There was another song Dekho Rootha Na Karo which was also shot in Shimla.

In this Blog I look at the other famous songs shot in Shimla or nearby locations.

 Another song Tera Mujh Se Hai Pehle Ka Naata Koi from Aa Gale Lag Jaa starring Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore reminds the amazing chemistry between the duo as they skate through the slopes of snow-clad Shimla. Shashi Kapoor’s heart-warming smile and trademark head movements make you fall in love with both the white mountains and the idea of romance.

In 1973’s Daag, helmed by eternal romantic Yash Chopra, Rajesh Khanna crooned "Mere dil mein aaj kya hain/Tu kahen to main bataa du" to Sharmila Tagore against the backdrop of the mountains.

In 1974, Dulal Guha directed Dost, in which, right at the outset of the film, the audience saw a pensive Dharmendra on the Kalka-Shimla toy train, with the theme song, "Gaadi bula rahi hai/Ceeti bajaa rahi hai", playing in the background. He hops off the train at Taradevi.

 It is the title song of the 1974 J Om Prakash’s directorial debut movie Aap Ki Kasam starring Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz. Anand Bakshi penned the lyrics and Rahul Dev Burman who received his only Filmfare Awards nomination for this movie, composed the music. The song was shot in Kufri a beautiful place near Shimla.

In Jab We Met, Shimla was the place where Geet (Kareena) stayed after she broke up with her boyfriend Anshuman. The song is picturized in the town with a scene where Sahid Kapoor drives his car on the mall road while searching out for Kareena.  Moreover, the movie also features the iconic toy train of Shimla when they head back to Kareena’s native place

The song “yeh vaada hai” is a romantic track from the movie Raju Chacha featuring Ajay Devgan and Kajol. The song is mainly picturized in the woods of St. Bedes and the forest road of Shimla for a romantic touch.

The track “behti hawas sa tha wo” has different locations of Shimla town featuring the road near victory tunnel and even the Shimla bypass. The hill station was described as Aamir Khan’s hometown, so had numerous scenes shot in and around Shimla.
