Stories have the power to transport us anywhere across the world. We could be in a bustling market, a noisy city, a quaint greenland or inside someone’s home. When made to be a part of a series or a film, these places and locations are often attached centrally to a character and help us explore their world, taking us along in their journey. Netflix series and films in India have been filmed across more than 20 locations. These stories have taken Indian characters and the places they are from the world. After all, great stories can come from anywhere and be loved everywhere.
