3. DIL DHADAKNE DO | Turkey

On their first date, Anushka and Ranveer meet at Taksim Square and go cycling on the Galata Bridge in Istanbul. Much of the movie is shot on a cruiseliner but imagine our happy surprise of getting glimpses of Turkey. In the movie, ladies went to a hammam by themselves but you can go with your partner and indulge in a traditional Turkish bath. Don’t miss Hagia Sophia, Taksim Square, Grand Bazaar, and Topkapı Palace. Also in Turkey, you enjoy the dreamy, surreal landscape of Cappadocia from the sky in a hot air balloon.

4. TAMASHA | Corsica

The song Matargasthi was shot in Bastia, and you can see the pair gallivanting around the city. The Mediterranean island of Corsica has beautiful beaches and quiet coastal towns. Bastia will only be a day’s worth on your itinerary—see the historic quarters, visit the Governor’s Palace and dine at A Casarella Bastia or LN Mattei. However to explore the distinctive character of the island, visit historic towns such as Sartène and Ajaccio; drive to a dramatic beach like Palombaggia; stay in a boutique resort like Miramar Boutique Hotel in Propriano; and sample veau aux olives (veal with olives) and agneau corse (Corsican lamb).

5. SHAANDAAR | Yorkshire

The facade of Carlton Towers has been showed in the movie countless times. Inside, it really is a magical place for weddings. Shaandaar may not have done justice to the destination but there is much to do in the world of Bronte’s Shirley. Imagine staying in a historic castle; discovering moors and meadows of the county; taking walks around the rivers and canals. This Valentine’s Day, book a couple’s cooking course at Carlton Towers and spend the night at this regal Victorian Gothic-style country home. carltontowers.co.uk
