If you’ve ever wanted to experience the loud, crazy, colorful, vibrant Bollywood life in person, this is your dream trip!
What’s all the fuss about Bollywood, you say? Well, for starters, it’s the world’s largest film industry, rivaling Hollywood in terms of size, scope and star wattage. The standard Hindi film has more melodrama, action, romance, and song and dance than you can shake a stick at. And you won’t find fans more deliriously devoted than those in Mumbai!
To demonstrate the magnetic appeal of Bollywood stars, we take you past the homes of two of the leading men in the industry – Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan. Both superstars have been known to wave to their devoted fans, so you may be in luck!
At Walk of the Stars, you’ll see the handprints of famous Bollywood celebrities. And for a photo opportunity that can’t be beat, you can pose next to a few statutes of film legends.
Of course, no trip to Mumbai is complete without seeing a Hindi movie! You’ll do just that at the Gaiety Galaxy, a charming, timeless old-world movie house. Get ready for community participation as fellow moviegoers cheer for the hero’s entrance, whistle at the heroine’s intricate dance moves and sing along with the film’s chartbusting songs.
Life is short – it’s time for some Bollywood!
The Bollywood Treats – Mumbai experience is your ticket to explore the glamour and glitz of Bollywood, one of the world’s largest film-making cities.
The adventure begins when you make your way to the Taj Lands End hotel, located at the Band Stand in Bandra. On this walking tour, you’ll learn all about Mumbai’s extraordinarily popular Bollywood scene. You’ll see what all the fuss is about and watch a Hindi movie, as well as cruise past several stars’ houses and snap photos on the Walk of Stars
We start by wandering through the posh lanes of Pali Hill that, home to many of Bollywood's rich and famous. You’ll take a rickshaw ride past the iconic sea-facing mansion of the Delhi boy who rose to super stardom, Shahrukh Khan. We’ll also see the misleadingly modest apartments of Salman Khan, the heart-throb of the masses.
We then move to the most recent addition, “Walk of the Stars”, where you can view handprints of famous Bollywood celebrities as well as pose next to a few statutes of film legends.
After riding past a few more Bollywood stars’ houses, we end up at Gaiety Galaxy, one of the original multiplexes in suburban Mumbai. Here, you’ll get your money’s worth as you are introduced to a Bollywood film in an atmosphere where the crowd tends to get quite carried away. A quick summary prior to the film’s beginning and an update in the intermission means you’ll get the scoop on the action unfolding on screen.
