Ooty is one of the popular locations for film shooting in South India. Many hit movies were shot in many locations of Ooty. Earlier the Ooty is crowded with film crews from kollywood and bollywood. But recent times only very few films were shot here. Because the cost of shooting in abroad became less.
Places like fernhill palace, shooting point, Pykara lake and pine forest are very popular locations. Films like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Sadma, Barfi, Dil Se, Roja and recent tamil hit Nanban were all shot in and around Ooty.
Apart from the scenic locations, the weather, budget places to stay and transport are all the major reasons for film producers to choose Ooty.
