Discover the Hungarian-Bollywood connection!

Recollect the climax scene in the song ‘Hum dil de chuke sanam’? No, it wasn’t the London bridge, nor was it shot in Italy. It was shot on the Szechenyi Chain Bridge in Budapest. In fact, the epic love story was shot in Budapest (Hungarian capital), and passed off as some Italian city. So was the Amitabh Bachchan starrer “Aks” shot partially in Budapest, the mesmerising capital of Hungary…That is the beauty of Hungary…
