Made of red laterite, not much remains of the barracks and other buildings that were a part of the fort structure except irregularly shaped walls and some secret tunnels. Chapora Fort became popular in the 2000s, thanks to Dil Chahta Hai, a movie that gained a near cult status. The fort was used as a location for filming a popular song from the movie. Darjeeling: The timeless beauty of this Himalayan hill station was brought to life on the silverscreen by Director Anurag Basu in one his most popular movies, Barfi.
