    Why Dev Anand loved to shoot at cool locations

    Location is an essential part of movies. And as far as Dev Anand’s movies are concerned, we’ve seen him trot all over hill stations in his movies. While Hare Rama Hare Krishna was shot in Kathmandu, Tere Mere Sapne from the movie Guide is another song that’s tastefully shot on a hill station. Dev Anand was very fond of wearing jackets, scarves and hat, and his love for such clothing accessories did pose a problem for the hot weather. Apparently, this was the reason why he chose to shoot at cooler locations, preferably hill stations, just to humour his love for closed collars.

    The news of Dev Anand’s death has shocked his legion of fans in and out of the Bollywood film industry
    Dev Anand was rightly called the evergreen hero, and not just because of his long tenure as leading man. While he played the quintessential hero onscreen with his unique style and mannerisms, offscreen too he had an approach to life that was highly inspirational. It has often been said that he actually lived the way one of his songs advocated – har fikr ko dhue mein udaata chala gaya (I moved on, letting my worries go up in smoke). He had many classics to his name – Guide, CID, Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Gambler, Hum Dono – and yet never stopped making films. He wanted to die with his boots on, and that’s what he did.
