The vast nothingness, a lonely stretch of road and group of close friends taking their friendship to another level is what Banjarey from Fugly has to say. The masti and the fun that these four friends have while they embark on this breathtaking journey is the highlight of the song. Not to miss the remarkable backdrop of Ladakh. HolidayIQ Traveller Deepak Amembal from Mumbai shares, “I had been planning to visit Ladakh since a long time. And I was sure of one thing that as and when I visit it will be by motorcycle. It was my dream to be astride my motorcycle atop Khardung La pass the highest motorable road in the world on my 60th birthday but it was not to be. Finally I realised my dream last year in September. Ladakh did not disappoint. It gave me the experience of a lifetime. The people, their culture is one to be respected. You are treated with utmost respect everywhere in an inhospitable environment. Ladakh is an addiction. One cannot get enough.”

6. Gunday - Jashn-E-Ishqa - Howrah Bridge, Kolkata

It's a bond of love and friendship that takes shape in the Kolkata of the 80's. And what defines this iconic city best is the iconic symbol of grandiose — the Howrah Bridge. HolidayIQ Traveller Ananya Ray says, “Try biriyani's of aminia, park street barbq, and bhajahari manna. Also eat all the street food you can. Go visit victoria gardens, new market is worth a visit. Walk from maidan to princep ghat, get into a tram, try to use metro for travelling across kolkata. Visit college street area. Golpark lake is lovely.”

7. Yaariyan - Baarish, Sikkim

Not many movies have travelled to this part of India, but Yaariyan beautifully captures this unexplored piece of beauty. Nothing evokes romance better than walking through snow capped mountains or dancing in the rains. And this song has both! HolidayIQ Traveller Shumantho says, “A marvellous place. From here, you can get an amazing view of the natural beauty of Sikkim and even catch a glimpse of Kanchenjunga.” HolidayIQ Traveller Swastik says, “Gurudongmar Lake is a  'must-see destination before your die' in India. The lake is heavenly, serene and mesmerising. The journey to the lake itself is a nature lover's delight. The beauty of the lake cannot be described or reviewed; some places are there for you to just go and experience them.”

Remember the shot of the beautiful Aishwarya Rai dancing against a backdrop of the cascading Athirappilly Falls in Kerala? HolidayIQ Traveller Rajanikanth says, “Athirappilly waterfall is a visual grandeur which cannot be described in words. Its ferocious waters falling from the cliff evokes a feel of thrill. Unlike the other waterfalls, at Athirappilly, water will not be depleted fully and flow will be there throughout the year. Its location also is easily accessible with a little effort. It offers a dual view, ie both from the bottom of the waterfalls as well as from the upper side. Anyone visiting Cochin can commute to this place within 2 hours. There are extremely beautiful scenic spots at this location. A sense of awe engulfs you while watching the waterfalls.”
