New movie showcases 'pure magic' of India

Film fans can catch flights to India this year and follow in the footsteps of the stars of West is West, the sequel to the award-winning East is East, which is set to be released on 25 February.

Jet Airways said that people who are inspired by the 'beautiful cinematography' of the new movie can discover some of its locations for themselves.

Much of the film was shot on location in India, in the foothills of the Himalayas.

Speaking about the experience of filming in the country, producer Leslee Udwin commented on the 'pure magic that inexplicably takes place' there.

Director Andy de Emmony said: 'We tried to find locations where the flat land met the mountains and the Shivalik range at the foothills of the Himalayas near Chandigarh was where [we] found it. The set was fantastic from my point of view - very real.'

Jet Airways was the official airline partner for West is West and regularly carried the production team to various cities in India over a number of months.

The airline operates daily flights from London Heathrow to Chandigarh via Delhi.
