All Bollwood movies are a feast for the senses and a truly spectacular and the film Ek Tha Tiger by the Indian director Kabir Khan does not disappoint. However, what differentiates it from other Bollywood movies is that part of the movie was filmed in Dublin, with locations around the city centre used and Trinity College Dublin for some of the main crowd scenes.

Ek Tha TIger not only has strong links with Dublin City, but also with the Central Hotel. below  is Salman Khan with our Deputy Manager Indra. Scenes from the film where shot in our very own hotel!


The film features the Bollywood superstars, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, who play the lead roles of Tiger and Zoya, a secret agent and a dance student, who undertake a journey  that takes them from Dublin to Turkey, Kazakhstan and Chile.

The Central Hotel were delighted to have a small part to play in the making of the movie and were all excited to see the finished result when it was launched in August 2012.
