If you are a film buff looking to live out some of your favourite silver screen dreams, taking a film tour of Ooty or the Filmy Chakkar as it is popularly known in Hindi, is one of the best ways to experience the magic of Ooty. Over 200 films have been shot in Ooty and this puts the Filmy Chakkar and Pine Forest Tours on top of your list of things to do in Ooty when you stay at a Club Mahindra resort in Ooty. This tour is a sure-fire way to turn your holiday videos into blockbusters.

From Shahrukh’s iconic Chaiyya Chaiyya on the roof of a toy train, to Kabootar Ja from Maine Pyaar Kiya which was shot at Ooty’s Botanical Gardens, the Filmy Chakkar will take you to the settings for some of your favourite Bollywood songs. Remember the Shimla summer camp from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? That was actually filmed at Ooty’s Wenlock Downs, as were the songs Pucho Zara Pucho from Raja Hindustani and Aisi Deewangi from Deewana. Besides these, iconic scenes in films such as Barfi, Andaaz Apna Apna, Roja and Raaz have been shot at locations in Ooty and the Filmy Chakkar is the best way to see them all.

Another famous tourist spot is the Pine Forest. This forest of symmetrically growing rows of pine trees is situated between Ooty and Thalakunda and has been featured in a number of popular Hindi movies. The towering forest makes for a delightful scenic view and tons of Instagrammable pictures. A number of Bollywood films including Saajan, Sadma, Dil and Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak have scenes shot in the Pine Forest.

With Club Mahindra, you can witness many such magnificent experiences across 100+ resorts in India and abroad! To know more about the Filmy Chakkar and Pine Forest Tours that you can experience when you stay at a Club Mahindra resort in Ooty, read the Club Mahindra member reviews.
