According to Bernardo Pozuelo, the council member for tourism in Nerja, an Indian film crew will be in Nerja during August. Film locations are apparently still being studied. The scenes are expected to involve colourful dance groups, very typical of Bollywood film sets. Other locations have also been chosen in Andalucía such as Seville and Marbella.
Interest from India in Spain has been inspired by a recent film, a couple of years ago, titled “You Only Live Once”, a story of three visitors on holiday to Spain, which received 7 nominations in the Bollywood Oscars. A song in the film, a rumba called “Señorita” sung by María del Mar Fernández was a huge hit in India.
The demand for filming in Nerja is constant, from film sets to adverts, documentaries, video clips and holiday television programs.
