Agra – If we talk about the film industry, from Hollywood to Bollywood, the magic of Agra’s Taj Mahal continues. Rabindranath Tagore called the Taj Mahal ‘a tear on the cheek of eternity’. Before independence, in 1942, the love story of Shahjahan and Mumtaz was depicted on the film screen in the form of Taj Mahal. Actress Suraiya appeared on screen in this film at the age of 12. Actor Muhammad Naseem was given the role of Shahjahan in the film. Since then, more than 300 films have been shot at the world famous Taj Mahal.
Actors Pradeep and Bina Roy played the memorable roles of Shahjahan-Mumtaz in the 1963 film Taj Mahal. Roshan’s music gave a new voice to the marble stones. Since then films have continued to be shot at the Taj. Especially Taj is considered suitable for romantic scenes. India’s popular film star Amitabh Bachchan also performed with Bunty and Babli in Stranger.
Not only in films but also in many famous songs, Taj Mahal has been especially shown as a symbol of love. The song ‘Suno Na Marmar’ from the film ‘Youngistaan’ had a great impact on the hearts of people. This song of singer Arijit Singh was especially liked by the youth. Ishq Rishik in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Arjun Kapoor’s fun-filled performance in the film Tevar were shot at Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal was filmed in the songs of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, Bewafa, Yamla Pagla Deewana and Scorpion.
