RRR to 99 Songs, Indian Movies Shot in Picturesque Lands of Ukraine

On February 24, 2022, the world was shocked to study that Russian President Vladimir Putin had initiated a “navy intervention” in Ukraine, following months of turmoil. Reports of airstrikes and explosions throughout the nation soon followed.

Ukraine is a popular filming location due to its distinct natural beauty and culture. The picturesque landscape has not eluded the attention of Indian filmmakers. It’s no surprise that a few Indian directors have turned to Ukraine as a creative force. Here’s a list of some of those films.


During the Covid-19 pandemic in 2021, Russia and Ukraine reopened their doors to travellers. As a result, the RRR crew decided to shoot several key scenes in Ukraine. After careful planning, the RRR crew travelled to Ukraine to film the iconic Naatu Naatu song as well as critical combat sequences.


Apart from RRR, the 2017 Telugu film, Winner, also has some mystical sequences from Ukraine. The film, helmed by Gopichand Malineni, stars Sai Dharam Tej as well as Rakul Preet Singh, and Jagapati Babu in key roles. Three of the film’s tracks were shot in the capital city Kyiv, Lviv, and Istanbul. According to reports, it was the first Indian film to be shot in Ukraine.
