Be it for personal or professional endeavours, Bollywood stars are often clicked at the airport, with or without their families. Most of them are often spotted in London or New York and that makes us all assume that these are their favourite holiday destinations. But this is not true one bit! Hold your horses until you find out which vacay spots fascinate famous B-town celebrities. From Paris, London and New York to Switzerland, Goa and Thailand, the list goes on. And from Amitabh Bachchan to Anushka Sharma, read on to find out their all-time favourite getaways… not only for your information but maybe you can spot them at some point in your life!
1. Kareena Kapoor Khan – Switzerland
While many would assume Bollywood’s bebo loves vacationing in London, it turns out this does not hold true. The starlet was holidaying in the United Kingdom for most of this summer with her parents Babita and Randhir Kapoor, sister Karisma Kapoor and husband Saif Ali Khan. However, it seems like the city still doesn’t fascinate her much. Kareena revealed she loves visiting Gstaad and no matter where she goes Switzerland remains her favourite vacation spot. The Pataudi family reportedly travels every year to Gstaad in December. We don’t blame you Kareena, we’re all for scenic locations and chilly weather too!
2. Bipasha Basu – Goa
If there is one particular edible item she has a soft spot for, it’s seafood. Bipasha is known to love everything from crab to prawn and lobster. Hence, her go-to getaway is Goa. She runs to the picturesque Indian state every chance she gets, whether it’s for some quality me-time or with her husband Karan Singh Grover. Bips and her doting hubby also spent their second wedding anniversary in Goa in 2018 and the pictures were drool worthy! Bipasha reportedly also spent a lot of time in Goa with former flames John Abraham and Dino Morea.
3. Kangana Ranaut – Paris
Her fans finally have an answer to why she may have starred in the Bollywood hit film Queen. Set in the French capital, the lit city turns out to be Kangana’s all-time favourite vacation destination too. According to sources, she visits Paris every year with her friends and family. Not only do tourist spots like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre museum appeal to her but the cuisine, good vibes and fashion forward dressing of the French attracts Kangana the most! A few years ago when news about Kangana’s rumoured relationship with Hrithik Roshan broke the internet, insiders claimed the latter proposed to her in front of the Eiffel Tower. However, nothing was ever confirmed. Irrespective of this, Kangana’s forever favourite spot is Paris!
4. Saif Ali Khan – London
Hmmm… now we know why we assumed the English capital to be his ladylove Kareena’s favourite. Because it is his most special holiday destination! Saif prefers to head to London every year and he did this time too. From being spotted at ICC World Cup 2019 cricket matches to shopping sprees to the best clubs in town, Saif was caught by the shutterbugs throughout June and July in London. He must be elated when he was told the shooting of his upcoming film Jawaani Jaaneman would begin from the city.
5. Priyanka Chopra – Thailand
PeeCee loves Thai food and the easy breezy environment. She is also a total beach babe and beautiful sunrise, crystal clear waters and a range of water activities is what the country is known for. While she is busy with work and does not head to Bangkok often now, Priyanka still loves beach-y places and cannot get enough of them. After her marriage to pop singer Nick Jonas, she also took off with fellow couple and her brother-in-law Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner to Miami Beach, Florida.
6. Anushka Sharma: Himalayas
Travelling to the hill stations of India has always been on top of her list. Anushka has been said to love the Himalayan Mountains and often vacations there. She is adventurous and loves exploring new places and so the Himalayas are made for people like her. Anushka doesn’t care if she has to sleep in camps or travel with just a backpack in tow. The starlet also disclosed that she loves staying at the Ananda Spa in the Himalayas because it provides peace to her otherwise on-the-go and hectic life. Anushka and her husband Virat Kohli have also found love in Italy, for its scrumptious food and cobbled streets. Well, we know where to find them next!
7. Salman Khan – Dubai
The B-town superstar is known for spending his New Year’s Eve in Dubai as it has long remained his favourite holiday spot. His friends and family often join him too. Salman has also been spotted celebrating many of his birthdays in the UAE. And, he’s known to be a shopaholic too, putting his love for Dubai more into perspective!
8. Amitabh Bachchan – Goa
According to multiple reports online, Goa is one of Big B’s favourite destinations. He likes to relax for hours at a stretch on the Goa beach and experience the local culture. London appeals to him too!
9. Ranbir Kapoor – New York
We would believe this any day! The party boy of Bollywood loves vacationing in the Big Apple. The city also holds special value to him because he studied there for some time and so he has many friends in New York. Ranbir was recently spotted with his rumoured girlfriend and actor Alia Bhatt on the streets of NYC and won the hearts of millions of fans around the globe. Ranbir’s other favourite destinations are apparently Venice and Puglia in Italy.
10. Akshay Kumar – Canada
His love for the place goes beyond him holding a Canadian passport. Akshay loves to spend family time and often visits his relatives in Toronto and Vancouver. From the food to shopping and the very famous Niagara Falls, we would be lying if we said we didn’t love Canada either!
11. Deepika Padukone – French Riviera
It seems like Cannes 2019 was the best moment in Deepika’s life this year because the film festival was held at Deepika’s favourite destination – the French Riviera. Known for its captivating beaches, distinct culture and cuisine, it is touted as one of the most attractive tourist spots in France. And of course, who wouldn’t love what Deeps loves? We know we would!
12. Katrina Kaif – London
This British born beauty spent years of her early life in London. Familiar with the city’s people and restaurants, Kat loves spending time in a place that makes her ever-so-nostalgic. She has often expressed her love for London in various interviews and talk shows. Katrina also heads to London every once in a while to meet her relatives.
13. Shah Rukh Khan – London, Dubai and Paris
King Khan has not one but three destinations on his holiday list! He often spends his holidays with his wife and three children in London, Dubai or Paris. However, Shah Rukh switched things a little this year and was spotted vacationing with his family in the Maldives.
