Bollywood movie filmed on Ubin

According to, Bollywood Superstar, Hrithik Roshan's latest film, Krrish, is going for a 60-day nonstop shoot in Singapore from September to November.

Of course for the fans of this island off the northern coast of Singapore, one of the places to be featured in the movie will be... PULAU UBIN. Soon we shall be able to catch the boomerang-shaped island on the silverscreen of Bollywood. Soon one shall be able to cycle down the roads of Ubin not just thinking about the Channel 8 TV series "Good Morning, Sir" (Chao An Lao Shi), but of scenes from an international film. [editor's note: correct me if I'm wrong please.]

"Producer-director Rakesh Roshan signed an agreement with the Singapore Tourism Board in Mumbai and announced the deal.

Krrish will showcase locations in Singapore including the world renowned Singapore Zoo, state of the art concert venue The Esplanade, a heritage pier built in 1933, the cultural repository of Chinatown, the bustling lifestyle districts along Singapore River and one of Singapore's rustic islands, Pulau Ubin."
