    Stop At: Bandra Fort, Bandstand Road Mount Mary, Mumbai India

    The

    fort is called Castella de Aguada. Castella is, actually, a misspelling of

    the Portuguese word Castelo, which means castle, and aguada means

    fountain. Before you protest how can a sea-side castle be named a

    castle of fountain, let me tell you that five hundred years ago, this

    castle enclosed natural springs... the source of drinking water that was

    supplied to Portuguese ships cruising up and down this coastline. For

    thirsty sailors, the fort was a literally life-saving watering hole!

    The fort, strategically overlooking the Mahim Bay and the Arabian Sea

    beyond, also served as a watch tower for the Portuguese, who then

    ruled Bombay. An armed garrison was always stationed here to keep

    an eye out for enemy and pirate ships. Bandra has been a part of countless Hindi movies, both on and off the

    screen, and every step of our tour takes you through a piece of movie

    history. So, as you stroll along, you will soon realise that there’s so

    much you hadn’t noticed before.Bollywood has changed, actors have come and gone, but the Bandra

    Fort has stood strong... and its ageless appeal still inspires the

    occasional film shoot, now with an added highlight to the view.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Lands End Garden, Bandra Fort Trail, Mount Mary, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400050, India

    This is Mumbai’s suburban counterpart of the famous TajMahal hotel,

    and it is no less iconic when it comes to modern Mumbai, especially

    Bollywood. Taj Land’s End hosts several filmy events – from film trailer

    launches to success parties. Many Bollywood biggies choose this place

    to give interviews and conduct meetings.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Mannat Lands End, Siraj Dokadia Road, Mount Mary, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400050, India

    This is where

    lives Shah Rukh Khan... King Khan...the Baadshah of Bollywood.

    Shah Rukh Khan’s story resonates perfectly with Mumbai as a city of

    dreams... It is said that he first came to Bombay from Delhi, to pursue

    his childhood sweetheart, Gauri, and also to become a movie star.

    With not a dime in his pocket and nowhere to stay, the lad initially

    slept on park benches and pavements in this city. At the end of this

    story, Khan went on to marry his childhood sweetheart AND become a

    legendory actor. Originally called Villa Vienna, this is the

    mansion that Shahrukh bought in the year 2001 for 13.3 crore rupees,

    and where he lives till now with his family. He renamed it Mannat,

    which means a vow or a prayer.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Bandstand Promenade, Bandra, Mumbai India

    At the Bandstand Promenade, you can stand for a few seconds and

    take in the vast sweep of the Arabian Sea. From Wake Up Sid, to Life In

    A Metro, to JaaneTuYaJaane Na and Once Upon A Time In Mumbai,

    the Bandstand promenade is a recurrent character in Hindi cinema,

    with massive waves crashing on the rocks. If you are here during the

    monsoon, especially during the high-tide, you can experience this little

    drama first hand.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Bandra Fort, Byramji Jeejeebhoy Road, Bandstand Road, Mount Mary, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400050, India

    You will walk down the promenade. Look out on your right

    for two cafes ... Cafe Coffee Day and Barista. Both of these were once

    Salman Khan’s favourite spots for his date nights with actor Katrina

    Kaif during the early days of their romance. You may still catch a

    glimpse of the superstar who now occasionally comes here for a hot

    cuppa. Wonder what’s Salman's favourite brew?

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Sea Springs Apartments, 41, HK Bhaba Rd, Mount Mary, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400050, India

    You are looking at the

    house of perhaps the most enigmatic diva of Bollywood—the reclusive

    Rekha. Apparently, no one is allowed inside the bungalow, where the

    lady lives with her secretary and her pet cats and dogs.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Mudd Salon & Day Spa, Near Sea Bird Byramjee Jeejeebhai Road, Bandstand Promenade, Ranwar, Bandra West, W, Maharashtra 400050, India

    Before we reach to Mudd Spa we will visit Graffiti. You will see a

    large, expansive mural of Amitabh Bachchan’s Vijay from Deewar.

    Note how, while he wears the humble uniform of a dock worker, he’s

    sitting with his feet up with an unmistakable swagger and a look of

    defiance in his eyes. This is Salim-Javed’s great contribution to Indian

    cinema. You will see a striking painting on the wall.

    the actor is Rajesh Khanna. The film, of course, is Andaz.

    At Mudd Spa it is here that the enigmatic Rekha does her media

    interviews. It is said that the actress does not entertain journalists at

    her home, like many of the other stars do.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Galaxy apartment sk, Ranwar, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400050, India

    Before we reach to Galaxy we will visit Sahil Bungalow. A beautiful white bungalow will come into

    view. It is elegant and understated, and almost entirely anonymous

    despite being so prominent and eye-catching. Exactly how you can

    describe its famous resident. This bungalow, called Sahil, is the house

    of Waheeda Rehman, Bollywood’s graceful diva.

    No Bollywood fan needs to be told that this is the building where

    Salman Khan lives. Believe it or not, this superstar lives in an

    unremarkable, one-bedroom apartment on the first floor just above D-

    Mart that you will see facing the road. His parents live in an apartment

    on the second floor. Well, Salman has been living here since the early days of his career.

    The very sentimental and equally superstitious superstar believes that

    the house has a great vibe, and so he has stuck to this little place.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Mehboob Studios, 100 Almnestend Hill Road Bandra West, Mumbai 400050 India

    Till 1954, Mumbai’s big studios were located far away. Filmistan was in Goregaon, and Bombay Talkies in Malad. Then, Mehboob Khan

    constructed his studio in Bandra, which was not too far from where

    the filmy crowd lived... in Southern and Central Bombay. It was here

    that Mehboob Khan shot his most critically acclaimedand popular film,

    Mother India, in 1957.Mother India was the first of the only three

    Indian films that have been officially nominated in the Best Foreign

    Film category at the Oscars.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Mount Mary Basilica, Mount Mary Road Bandra West, Mumbai 400050 India

    Before we reach to Mount Mary Basilica we will visit Mount Mary steps, Bimal Roy’s house and Balmoral Hall.

    The Mount Mary

    Basilica, whose miraculous powers are said to have changed the

    fortunes of many a Bollywood star.

    This church is also the focal point of the Bandra Feast and Bandra Fair

    celebrated in September every year. During the feast, wax figures of

    Mother Mary and an assortment of candles shaped as various parts of

    the body are sold at kiosks outside the church. The sick and the

    suffering choose a candle or wax figure that corresponds to their

    ailment and light it in church, in the hope that Mother Mary will listen

    to their pleas. During the corresponding Bandra Fair, this road and the

    entire locality are decorated with buntings and streamers... and

    hundreds of pop-up stalls selling religious articles, roasted gram,

    snacks and sweets. The fair is a great place for kids and youngsters,

    who can’t get enough of the Ferris wheels and other exciting rides...

    not to mention the food and clothing stalls that spring up literally

    everywhere.

    The Mount Mary’s basilica that we see today is the fourth version of

    the shrine and is just over a hundred and ten years old. The basilica

    has featured in quite a few movies.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Cliff Tower, Chowk, Mount Mary, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400050, India

    side. This huge

    building complex is home to one of Bollywood's most popular and

    successful filmmakers, SubhashGhai. Can you name Ghai’s memorable

    blockbusters? Kaalicharan, Karz, Karma, Saudagar, Ram Lakhan,

    KhalNayak and Pardes... go on! It’s remarkable that these films were

    made across a period of over 30 years, and yet they captured the

    imagination of their specific generations.
