Rajasthan is a film maker's delight! The land has lush green forests and wetlands as opposed to its pure sand deserts. Add to it, the aroma of history and architecture that surrounds the state. People live in the timeless tradition and have kept their bygone era alive. Colour reflects in every fold of life and its picturesque locations. This attracts Film Units, Script Writers and Directors from all over the world to come & shoot in Rajasthan.

Every film maker of Bollywood has at least one song dance sequence shot in front of the Monuments and Forts of Rajasthan. Scenes requiring the royal flavour can never miss the City palace of Jaipur or Umaid Bhawan of Jodhpur. Classics like Mughal-e-azam was shot in Deeg Palace, Bharatpur and in the famous Sheeshmahal of Amber Palace. Endless scenes of sand dunes, drying chillies and village locations are commonplace for films with rural setting. Even the blockbuster television serials like Tipu-sultan have Rajasthan as their backdrop.

Hollywood has not missed the exotic and the divine location of Rajasthan either. The James Bond thriller Octopussy was shot in Udaipur, apart from the films like Far Pavilions or Heat and Dust etc. in and around Lake Pichola, and including the Lake Palace and other backdrops of Thar. M.M. Kaye's classic, The Far Pavilions was shot entirely in Rajasthan, with Samode Palace as its backdrop. Film star Kate Winslet's recent film 'Holy Smoke' has been shot in Pushkar.
