After almost a decade, a major Bollywood movie has scenes shot in Singapore. In the past, Singapore had been featured in movies like Krrish (2006) and De Dana Dhan(2009). The movies have helped entrench Singapore as a must-visit and repeat destination among the Indian travelers.

MUMBAI - Singapore Tourism Board joined (STB) hands with Red Chillies Entertainment, Dharma Productions and Hope productions as part of the launch of the Alia Bhatt-Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Dear Zindagi’, which was released in India on Friday, November 25th 2016. The film is directed by Gauri Shinde.

The slice-of-life film has key opening scenes shot in Singapore, introducing Alia Bhatt’s character as a cinematographer in the movie. The Singapore Tourism Board, Changi Airport Group and Singapore Airlines supported the location shoots at One Fullerton Promenade, Changi Airport and onboard a Singapore Airlines aircraft.

Alia was present at an event hosted by STB on Friday afternoon where she shared her experience of shooting for Dear Zindagi in Singapore.

Mr. G.B Srithar, Regional Director for South Asia, Middle East & Africa, Singapore Tourism Board said, “We are delighted to be associated with Red Chillies Entertainment, Dharma Productions & Hope productions on their movie, ‘Dear Zindagi’. Singapore has long been a popular location for Bollywood movies, showcasing the city as an exciting and friendly destination to the Indian audiences. Movies play a major role in shaping people’s perceptions of the places featured. We are happy that the introduction of a lively Kaira, Alia’s character in the movie, takes place against Singapore’s dynamic cityscape. As a city known for year-round, action-packed excitement with top-rated attractions, vibrant retail scene, award-winning cuisine and a plethora of entertainment options, Singapore certainly offers ‘Zindagi’s many magical moments’ for our guests.”
