"Big banners of Bollywood are on a visit to Kashmir to explore scenic backdrops for their future film projects," a statement from a  spokesman read.

“Kashmir has been receiving good response from Bollywood filmmakers since the opening of the tourism here, in addition to the country's regional entertainment houses for shooting song sequences and commercial advertisements,” Director, Tourism, Kashmir, G N Itoo was quoted as saying by PTI.

He added that the Valley was a 'natural location' for the filmmakers and that the department was trying to ensure ease in obtaining permission for shooting.

Kashmir has seen a spike in tourist footfalls, courtesy the continuous snowfall since the start of the winter. That was evident with the ski resort being fully booked and most hotels being occupied till February, amid the increasing flow of tourists.

One of the celebrities who recently shot in Kashmir was singer Guru Randhawa. He shared that the chilly weather had made it hard to shoot, and even posted a picture of his bleeding nose. However, he called it 'great shoot.'
