INDIAN FILM PRODUCTIONS IN GREECE

Katerina Siomou & Dimitrios Vassiliadis

Starting from 1997, the Indian cinema started making its first steps in Greece. Indian movies had been already very popular amongst the Greeks since the days of Nargis in the 60’s, but the Indian film industry did not produce any movie in Greece. The beginning was made with the shooting of the song “Kissa Hum Likhenge” for the Bollywood movie “Doli Saja Ke Rakhna” which was released the following year in India. The big stars of the Indian cinema, Akshaye Khanna and Jyothika Saravanan, who performed in this song, broke the pomegranate and since then several Bollywood, Tamil and Telugu movies were shot in various beautiful places of Greece. 

The titles of these films and the locations in which they were produced are given along with videoclips of the film songs in the pages below. 

We hope that more movies will be added in this list in the coming years and the film industry will bring closer Greece and India, two countries so distant from each other, but so close in culture, emotions and colors.
