These hotspots will make you feel like a movie star.
They say a destination is best explored with the mindset of a local, not a tourist. And when it comes to Mumbai, its vibe gets a lot better when that local is someone famous. The perfect way to experiencing the land of dreams, struggle, success, and stardom is through the places frequented by the celebrities of Bollywood, one of the world’s largest movie industries. Here are a few spots in the city that will put you in the zone.
Top Picks for You
JW Marriott Juhu
The suburb of Juhu is not only close to a number of filming studios; its beachside location also makes it a prime real-estate attraction for the industry’s best. Therefore, you can’t go wrong with this 5-star hotel, which doubles as a popular venue for showbiz events. Just a walk down Marriott’s opulent corridors could have you cross paths with a star or two. But to feel as luxurious as one, tuck into a hearty meal at Lotus Café, the coffee shop, whose extensive multi-cuisine menu can pamper even the fussiest of eaters. Actor Shahid Kapoor (known for his titular role in Haider, Bollywood’s own Hamlet) is one of the many famous regulars here. For best results, book a table for Lotus’ Sunday brunch. Another option is Mezzo Mezzo, whose Italian fare has found flavor with superstar of the millennium, Amitabh Bachchan.
