In his directorial debut Prem Pujari (1970), Dev Anand followed the trend.He shot several scenes and a famous song inside Switzerland.Released in 1964, this movie had a screen time close to 200 minutes, filled with an emotional storyline and songs starring Raj Kapoor, Vyjayanthimala and Rajendra Kumar.
It was a brilliant decade with so many talented actors and actresses, directors and musicians, singers and songwriters.
The songs, the cinematography, the arrival of color to the movies.
No one would argue against the fact that Yash Chopra - through his movies – has single-handedly promoted Switzerland to wider audiences of cinema lovers across India.
Soon, Switzerland became a destination for the romantics, honeymooners and for nature travellers.
The 1960s was the golden decade in the history of the Indian cinema.
During this time film makers experimented with several genres and audiences applauded.Among Indians, it ranks among the top international destinations.One of the main reasons stems from the fact that Switzerland's landscape is very different to that of mainland India.For many Indians, a European trip was incomplete without a visit of Switzerland!Since the 1980's, many film directors have chosen Switzerland.In my opinion, Switzerland as a tourist destination will be popular among the touring population of India for years to come.
