Ek Villain was one of those movies which stood out not just for its story but also for its visual appeal. Whether it was the underwater scenes or the slices of life taken from Goa, its scenes made an impact. Read on to know more about these shooting locations.
Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception
The churches are one of the biggest attractions of Goa. The Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in Panjim was built in the 15th century and has featured in a number of Bollywood films.
Sea of Stars
The glowing ocean in the song Galiyan in which Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor are seen running along the shoreline was a hit. The song was shot at the Sea of Stars on Vaadhoo Island where the waves give off light at night due to a natural phenomenon called bioluminescence. Maldives is known for its crystal clear beaches and amazingly beautiful marine life.
Hills in Mauritius
The scene that captured dancing peacocks left many speechless during the movie. For the cast, this required camping on a hilltop in Mauritius for many hours to capture the shots of the peacocks.
Diving Spots in Mauritius
The underwater scenes in the song Galiyan in which Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor swim along with colourful fish was a major attraction in the movie. This was shot across three diving spots in Mauritius.
The spectacular waterfall where Shraddha Kapoor has butterflies land on her hand is called Rochester Falls. This is in Mauritius as well.
