Humayun’s Tomb: this heritage site finds favor with Bollywood too; OnManorama


India – Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi

A trip to New Delhi is incomplete without a visit to the Humayun’s Tomb. Close to Nizammudin, the Tomb seems to float above its symmetrical gardens. Built under the watchful eyes of Haji Begum 16 years after Humayun’s death, this monument marries Persian and Mughal elements. On World Heritage Day, we bring you four times when Bollywood kept a date with Humayun’s Tomb.

The most memorable may be the ‘Chand Sifarish’ song from the movie ‘Fanaa’. The song also shows other prominent Delhi monuments. Aamir Khan takes Kajol and her friends on a tour of the city, and they stop by at Humayun’s Tomb too.

‘Bol Naa Halke Halke’ song from “Jhoom Barabar Jhoom” starring Abhishek Bachchan and Preity Zinta was shot at the Humayun’s Tomb.

Remember Saif and Kareena in ‘Shukran Allah’ song from ‘Kurbaan’ this scene was shot at Humayun’s tomb.
