The Indian film industry and Switzerland: a long lasting love story. From the beginning of the 20th century, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenga has carved so many beautiful pictures of Switzerland in our mind and Swiss Cowbell is one of them. One only wishes that time stands still when visiting such a lovely place. And Switzerland has been a subject of curiosity, interest and aspiration, from the time I saw a movie called ‘Darr’. My attraction towards both Switzerland and Juhi Chawla made me research a lot about them, and till then my computer had either Juhi or Switzerland as the wallpapers.

– Finally Dont Miss the Swiss National Day fireworks sometime during the month of August and its a wonderful spectacle and a non stop experience. The Swiss Government is encouraging and promoting film shootings in Switzerland through “Film Location Switzerland” a government organisation offering logistical support to film producers from abroad. Furthermore, the Consulate General of Switzerland in Mumbai, in close collaboration with Switzerland Tourism – the official tourism arm of the Swiss Federal Governemnt, hold a number of events in India. In 1999 Mr. Shakti Samanta and Mr. Yash Chopra were felicitated for being ‘loyal friends’ of Switzerland with a citattion honoring them as “Honorary Guests for Life”, by Mr. Marco Hartmann, then President of Switzerland Tourism. As recently as in 2002, Mr. Yash Chopra was presented the Swiss Filmfare Award sponsored by Presence Switzerland, an institution of the Swiss Government, for playing a pioneering role in shooting Hindi films in Switzerland over the past 20 years. What a lot Yash Chopra has done for Swiss tourism!! I also came to know that there is a special tour operated from India which takes people to all the spots where Yash Chopra’s films have been shot!! AMAZING!!

I could not get Dev Anand and his beautiful song “Phoolon ke rang se, dil ki kalam se, tujhko likhi roz paati,”(with the colour of the flowers, with the pen of my heart,I write a letter to you everyday) out of my mind. If I remember correctly, it was sung in a train in Switzerland, in the movie Prem Pujari. The scene from that film, of those exquisite windows, full of flowers had been permanently etched on my mind.

Switzerland: heaven on earth for Indian film makers. Azure skies, Grey mountains, Snow capped peaks, flowers in all colors, Yellow flowers and lush green fields, snow, jersey cows; clear lakes, panoramic views, waterfalls, rivers flowing by; hiking trails, biking trails, skiing trails, cable cars, funiculars; French, Italian and German…well, ladies and gentlemen, that is Switzerland for you.

I had heard so much about the amazing beauty of Switzerland, that I was secretly not wanting to see it. I did not want the imaginary picture of Switzerland that I had in my mind, destroyed. My fears however were unfounded. As soon as we moved into Switzerland, my eyes, my mind, my whole being was stupefied. This place was so unimaginably beautiful. It was more pristine, picturesque and pleasing to the eye than the picture that I had in my mind. So much of beauty, calm, peace, colour, cows, in one place was simply amazing. The cows of Switzerland are pretty, healthy,and graze all over the hills. The music of their bells is 18

Keeping red tape to a minimum. Organising a film shoot abroad is a complicated business. You need to import equipment, materials and personnel to a foreign country and this inevitably involves a certain amount of bureaucracy. This is another area where choosing Switzerland can make life that decisive bit easier. We are fully aware of the problems that can arise and go out of our way to take the load of your shoulders. Following a few simple but necessary guidelines will make the entire process run more smoothly.

However, service excellence has its price. The following should be kept in mind in this regard: – Services and labour charges in particular are quite expensive in Switzerland compared with India, but Switzerland remains a competitive option when compared to its European neighbours. – Labour, transportation and, in many cases, also expensive equipment are charged on an hourly basis. So making proper arrangements and preparations before placing an order will help save you a lot of money. – Once goods and services are firmly ordered and delivered, they will be charged, whether used or not! In the entertainment service industry usually 50% of the total contract sum is payable when placing a firm order. The remaining 50% falls due before shooting starts.

Many roads lead to Switzerland. The teahouse was packed with unemployed men and students, and all around him the walls were plastered not just with scenes of Switzerland but also with theatrical posters, newspapers cartoons, assorted clippings, an announcement of the terms and conditions of the civil service exam, and a schedule of the soccer matches to be played by Karsspor that year.

Our trip was planned to visit the best places of Europe – Swiss and Paris! It was unarguably the best 15 days of my life! We started out on 21st September 2009, in our Emirates flight to Zurich! On reaching the Zurich international airport(the airport seemed very modest for the country ), we finished our baggage claims etc and stepped out. The first thing I noticed when I stepped out was a beautiful woman with a pram crossing a road without even glancing towards her right or left and as if Bollywood films were mocking at me, a bright red Ferrari Enzo was speeding towards her, every nerve in my body was screaming out to her , “hey watch out!!” but to my shock the car happily stopped few inches away from her (oh and there was no screeching sound of sudden harsh brakes either) and it dint bother the woman at all! She crossed the road peacefully as if the car dint exist (and looked at me as if I was an alien!). Well I told myself, “welcome to swiss!”- Where pedestrians are given more importance than the fast moving super cars. That was the first thing I observed in Switzerland. We boarded our bus, as we had to go to Bern for our night stay. We stopped our bus and walked down the cobbled street of the capital city Bern, which is completely breath taking. The second observation I made was that oh my god! People here drive in all those fancy super cars we always hear about! I saw all of them from Ferrari to Lamborghini,Porsche(all those NFS cars!) and mind u I even saw our very own Maruti Suzuki swift cutely making her way through those biggies. The capital city gives u that European feeling, the picturesque plazas, youngsters sipping beer on the streets where the cafés are stretched out to the roads. Then there was the main ingredient of the European streets- the clock tower! And not to forget the famous (ok the in-famous) Swiss banks. Well it is very difficult to figure out what each building stands for as all the buildings look like a famous monument in itself, carefully decorated with flowers and swiss flags.I was lost in my world looking at the plaza when suddenly my mom shakes me and asks me about our vanity bag! I take time to digest the fact that we lost our bag? No! it cant happen in Swiss!we are in swiss! No one steals a bag here! I ask her back, “whats the matter? where is the bag?” she looks at me and tells me that I had the bag, I look back at her completely unaware of that fact! Then we both run around panicking and looking for the bag. It was nowhere to be seen. Thankfully our passports and flight tickets were with my dad, but the bag had everything else including our money 60,000 INR (mind u it was converted currency in USD) . We were devastated and the worst part was we could not exactly recollect how and where did we lose it. Breaking the news to my father was the most difficult task(He was on the other side of the plaza during the bag loss)Another round of searching, panicking, asking locals continued and finally we had to give up(the police refused to understand one word of English!). Alas! We were completely broke on the very first day of our trip even before reaching our hotel! Now we had 2 options -1) Keep feeling bad about the money and spoil the rest of the tour 2) Forget about what happened , borrow some money from the tour guide and others who were with us and go on with the trip as if nothing had happened. Thanks to my sooooper dad , he first calmed down and told the two of us (mom n me) to forget what happened and to not regret because money comes and goes , trips like this r rare. That was it, there was no looking

back we enjoyed the trip like everyone else from the second day onwards. Keeping all these bad memories behind, next day we set out to Mt.Titlis , a very beautiful ice clad mountain peak(part of the Mt.Alps) frequented by skiing enthusiasts and tourists. The journey to the peak is through a 3 phase breath taking cable car ride. The last phase is through a rotating cable car. It leaves any normal nature loving human speechless. After playing on the ice mountain and having our lunch at an Indian restaurant (10 000 ft above sea level) right there on Mt.Titlis(yes ! there is an Indian restaurant on swiss alps! Now Mr.Yash Chopra has promoted the place so much , its hardly anything eh?) .After Mt .Titlis , we went to Lucerne , a calm city with few tourist attractions and best place for shopping chocolates. Next day we set out to Jungfrojoch(pronounced as yungfroyoch) , the topmost point of Europe. Now that was a long journey up the mountain.That was when I observed something else, the houses!! People in Swiss have beautiful wooden houses with thatched roofs and decorated window panes. It gives the whole country that unique ,beautiful medieval feel to it. Well folks don’t go by the medieval feel, the houses have shining red Ferraris and such super cars parked besides them! The country blessed with beauty also has the best technology in place and its precision is world famous( read watches and knives)! Well the journey to jungfro is thru a high class train that takes u to 11,782 feet above sea level, the top most point in Europe. It was a spectacular feeling to stand there on the ice clad alps and feel the air pass through you. Bliss! That evening we toured the Interlaken where even the street lights are decorated with flowers and flags!
