The KZN Film Commission recently headed to Mumbai for the India International Film Tourism Conclave 2015, with a mission to promote the beautiful province of KwaZulu-Natal as a premium film location.
With its rich diversity of Indian and African cultures, abundance of natural heritage sites, beaches, city landscapes and lush sub-tropical vistas, this province is a goldmine for film production. In fact, Durban is often showcased in Bollywood productions. The province has other dynamic locations to offer the industry. The KZN Film Commission is working to promote the unique experiences and scenery offered across the province.
Exploring the Diversity of KwaZulu Natal film locations
Fondly referred to as ‘Little India’, Durban is known for its Indian heritage. Many Indian films have been filmed here, including Race, Welcome, No Entry, Fida and Hera Pheri. Upcoming movies featuring Durban as a location include Aankhen 2 (Anil Kapoor, John Abraham) and Happy Anniversary (Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan).
Whilst the city streets, glorious beachfront and heady atmosphere of the city are well-known, many other regions are equally notable when it comes to offering a choice location. Carol Coetzee, CEO of the KZN Film Commission was interviewed on India Tourism Review to discuss her thoughts on KZN as a leading film location for Bollywood productions – click here to read the interview online.
