Summer. A time dedicated to vacations and family days out, thanks to schools being closed for the period. However, our forever hardworking Tinsel Town celebrities can still be seen shooting, even when the rest of the world is in a holiday mood. So as Summer embraces us once again, BollyCurry takes a quick look at those celebrities who slapped on some sunscreen and tried to beat the heat in sunny landscapes.

The romantic melody "Suraj Hua Maddham", from the movie Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, was shot in the vast desert of Cairo, Egypt. The actors had to shoot the entire sequence in the sun's blazing heat, a demanding feat, even when their netted clothing was brought into the equation. Another song to have seen a song tuned to it's sandy dunes is the soothing "Teri Ore" from the movie Singh is Kinng. Shot in Egypt, the song is still loved by one and all, even amidst the controversies that the song, or specifically Katrina's clothing, had to face.

When it comes to India, Rajasthan, also referred to as the Land of the Kings, seems to be the popular hot spot, seeing more busy schedule than any other land. 1999 saw the movie Hum Saath-Saath Hain gracing the location, more specifically during the honeymoon track of the oldest son and daughter-in-law played by Mohnish Behl and Tabu, where the younger generation tags along for the trip through the beautiful city of Jodhpur. The ancient city was also witness to the song "Mhare Hiwda Main Naache Mor" which ranged from the scorching desert sun to the dance in the rain.

Similarly, in the Abhaneri Fort in the small district of Dausa, near Jaipur, the cast of Bhool Bhulaiyaa shot for the dance number "Sakiya Re Sakiya", which pictured Amisha Patel dancing around the beautiful Fort. The sun at it's eye-blinding peak, highlighted the historic nooks and cranks of the Fort, lending us a glimpse of what was once a grand and majestic era.

The historical movie Jodhaa Akbar, starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, was shot in Jaipur and Rajasthan as well. The heat was evident in the entrance scene of Hrithik riding on the elephant as the actor was covered in slime. While Aishwarya had more indoor scenes, she was still seen outside in the song "Jashn-E-Bahaara" which started with her freeing parrots out in the open air. The cinematography of Jodhaa Akbar was appreciated by one and all, leaving Ashutosh Gowariker on cloud nine for several weeks after it's release.

Shot in the deserts of Bikaner and Ganjer was the movie Drona, starring Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra. The stills from the movie saw Bachchan Jr grabbing onto a fistful of sand in pure agony. It is said the desert had to be smoothed out each time before the shoot could begin so that the sand didn't look too rough in the masterpiece.

Shooting for their upcoming movies are the stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Parineeti Chopra for Shudh Desi Romance, shot in Jaipur, as well as Sharman Joshi and Soha Ali Khan for War Chod Na Yaar, shot in Bikaner. While Sushant and Parineeti lucked out with the rains in Jaipur, Sharman and Soha had to tolerate the heat by indulging in a bit of friendly cricket.

All is well that ends well. To complete the movie on time, stars have have no choice but to endure the torrid weather and shoot under the torturous sun, believing the end result is worth all the pain. It is tough and uncomfortable but when the films walk away with accolades, who's to complain? Here's hoping that Shudh Desi Romance and War Chodd Na Yaar receives the same success as the previous mentioned movies.
