Mumbai is the city where films are made, actors live and Bollywood exists. But a place like Delhi is a film in itself.
Movies are always an important part of our lives but when we Dilliwaalas see our lives on a big screen, it means a lot. Movies being shot at a real location is always a tough task for the maker, and if the real location is Dilli it’s even tougher.
Every movie with even a shot of Delhi receives huge appreciation from the city. It is always fun to see your daily life happenings, those roads & gallis on a silver screen.
