When it comes to exotic sites to shoot a film or a song, there are few places around the world that surpass the sites of Jordan. The recent Bollywood Box Office film, Munna Michael has exciting dance videos and a catchy twist but what made the audience’s heart throb faster were the enchanting background settings on most of their songs. One in particular, ‘Pyar Ho’ has visuals that have people transfixed on their screens!
The song at the onset opens displaying the much-marvelled stone carved dwelling of Petra, the Rose City. The delightful reddish hue of sandstone amidst the maze of huge stone caverns is the magnificence of Petra. The song flaunts of another captivating site from Jordan; the desert wilderness of Wadi Rum. It features dramatic sandstone mountains with valleys that cut into the sandstone and granite rock faces offering vivid views and a landscape resembling that of Mars. It is because of its unique topography that many shots depicting Mars in the recent Hollywood film ‘The Martian’ as well was shot in Jordan.
