Porto welcomes filming of new Bollywood production

The city of Porto has been chosen as a shooting location for the film Jailed, a Bollywood production from All Around The Globe. Filming will take place from 29 to 31 August, with logistical support from Filmaporto — film commission, with an 85-strong team including several professionals from the city.

Directed by Vishnu Vardhan — who in 2022 won IIFA (International Indian Film Academy) and Filmfare awards with Shershaah — this action-drama features Akash Murali and Aditi Shankar. The narrative follows a young woman, who moves to Portugal to study at the University of Coimbra but is unfairly imprisoned. Her boyfriend travels from India to prove the student’s innocence.

Outdoor scenes will be shot in streets and emblematic locations around the city, such as Avenida dos Aliados, Rua dos Clérigos, Rua das Flores and the Ribeira neighbourhood. The film, produced by the Indian company XB Film Creators, will premiere later this year in Asia.
