Bollywood will once again turn to picturesque Kashmir, hopes Abhishek Bachchan

Lauding the production support and facilities provided to film-makers in the valley, actor Abhishek Bachchan expressed hope that Bollywood will once again turn to picturesque Kashmir and shoot films here.
“I am very happy to be here. I have spent my childhood in Kashmir and to come back here after so many years is very nostalgic,” Mr Bachchan, who is in the valley to shoot his upcoming movie ‘Manmarziyaan’, told reporters in Srinagar on Tuesday.
“I have done a fair bit of shoots in Leh, but this is the first time that I have shot a film in and around Srinagar and Sonmarg,” he said.
Remembering his previous visits as a child to Kashmir valley, he said, “It is nostalgic for me because I have come here when my father used to shoot films here. It truly is heaven on earth and very happy to be back… it is as beautiful as it was.”
“Bollywood should come and shoot here because the kind of production help you get here and the facilities are fantastic. And Indian film industry has shot so many films in Kashmir… I am sure they will start coming back,” he said.
Mr Bachchan said ‘in the past couple of years we have seen fair amount of films being shot here and that trend will grow’.
“I’m shooting a film called Manmarziyaan for which we finished shooting last night. The director of the film is Anurag Kashyap,” he said.
The actor said that the atmosphere of Kashmir valley was beautiful as always.
