Europe became the de facto location because of Kashmir. At one point, every film was shot in Kashmir. However, due to the insurgency, Kashmir was closed down. And then we did not have those locations anymore. Unfortunately, there was a problem even in Darjeeling. So there wasn’t really anywhere for us to go. And Yash Chopra, I think, was the first one to open up Europe in that fashion. Because he was also the one who always went to Kashmir. So I suppose he was the first one to find an alternative to Kashmir because he couldn’t go there.
