New Indian TV series in Innsbruck

Each year, India’s Bollywood produces the highest number of films in the world. Its films are quite characteristic, full of music and singing. However, more and more productions are also shot abroad and resemble European films and TV series. One example is the latest soap opera series entitled Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil, which is being produced in Innsbruck.


The series will feature one of the most well-known Indian actresses, a major celebrity in her country - Drashti Dhami, who is also a model and a dancer. She is excited about the possibility of playing a part in a show which will be recorded in the heart of the Alps, Innsbruck. Dhami admires the scenery which is so different from her homeland. The other actors, as well as directors and screenwriters have a similar impression about filming in Innsbruck. The creators of the show are continuously looking for the most beautiful places in and around the city to find the best settings for their production.

Episodes are shown on TV every day, so the show’s fans are very attached to the main characters. The series has quickly gained popularity. It premiered in November and in the first week attracted over 70 million viewers.

The main theme of the show is a love story inspired by a Bollywood film entitled “Pardes”, with Shah Rukh Khan playing one of the leading roles. In addition to Dreshti Dhamiego, Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil also features Alka Amin, Additi Gupta and Surekha Sikri.

One of the main male characters is portrayed by Arjun Bijl, a hugely popular television actor in India. Additi Gupta on the other hand is one of the most beautiful young actresses and models in India, and is equally interesting and popular.
