Maldives: Bollywoods’ Favorite for Movies & Holidays

Tourism is an important sector for Maldives and a major revenue earner for that country. They do understand the importance of wooing Bollywood film-makers to their country, and also the importance of promoting their country to the affluent middle-class segment of India.

The Maldivian government is serious considering developing their islands as studios to attract more Bollywood film producers and directors.

They’re sure that Bollywood can be used to promote Maldives in the same manner as has happened in Seychelles and Mauritius.

The advantage Maldives has is that most Indian superstars (Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Amir Khan) are already convinced about the potential of this island country as prospective shooting locations.

Alia spent a lot of time on the beaches and also went cycling.

Katrina Kaif’s sizzling pictures from Maldives

Katrina Kaif’s sizzling pictures from Maldives, where she was shooting for a magazine.

Most of her movies in the recent past may have failed to sizzle the box-office, however Katrina Kaif still happens to be one of the most sought after celebrities in the industry.

More importantly for her fans, Katrina Kaif (after remaining elusive for long) has finally opened up to the social media by posting some gorgeous photos from Maldives. She even shared a stunning picture of her, flaunting a bikini.

Katrina Kaif was in Maldives for a photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Bride India. Manish Malhotra was the designer for the photo-shoot (and it happened to be his birthday).

Manish also posted a couple of pictures of the svelte actress, rocking a black bodysuit, resting against the designer.

Maldives Loves Bollywood Too

The country doesn’t have a lot of cinema halls, so the locals watch their favorite actors on cable television, where they have access to both the latest flicks as well as old Hindi films.

Even the ‘saas-bahu’ sagas are quite popular among Maldivians, especially women.

The Maldivian language sounds somewhat like the languages of North India; no wonder that Maldivians like to watch Hindi movies and listen to Hindi songs.

In fact, there are several popular Maldivian songs that are based on Hindi tunes.

People here love to listen to old songs of Mohammad Rafi, Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar, and Asha Bhonsle.

Maldives Tourism

Maldives, with its crystal-clear blue skies and white coral beaches, makes a picture-perfect romantic destination for weddings, honeymoons, and couples, who were celebrating their wedding anniversary. Its also a great destination to usher in the New Year.

Tourism is one of the largest sources of income for Maldives; it plays an important role in earning foreign exchange revenues and also in generating employment within the country. The archipelago (cluster or group of islands) of the Maldives is the main source of attraction to many tourists visiting the country worldwide.
