Fast becoming one of the hottest locations for shooting films, Abu Dhabi has become a favourite amongst Bollywood movie producers and directors who are making use of the unique backdrops on offer. From sprawling skyscrapers to dazzling deserts, the emirate has been featured in several movies already and locales that have been used include the Liwa oasis, Qasr Al Sarab, the Corniche and Yas Island. Film buffs wanting to relive the action or stay at sites such as Yas Island can consider residing at a luxurious villa Abu Dhabi has to offer such as Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Yamm Villa Resort, Abu Dhabi.
Released in 2014, Bang Bang was a prominent Bollywood blockbuster that featured Abu Dhabi which has been named by P3 Update as one of the leading international locations for producing films. A 30% production rebate offered by the Abu Dhabi Film Commission has served as another incentive, attracting filmmakers to the region.
