Newham Dockside: Bollywood's Busiest Airport?

Since its grand opening in 2010, the impressive Newham Dockside (Building 1000) has facilitated multiple productions including Feature Films, TV Dramas, Commercials, Corporate Videos and more. 

The productions are mainly looking for large open plan office spaces, meeting rooms, receptions area or modern corridors - Newham Dockside provides these in abundance.

But did you know that one of Newham's most iconic modern buildings is also the favourite set for Bollywood productions?

With the lower level of the building overlooking City Airport, the location offers the perfect setting for an airport setting.

Over the years a number of Bollywood features have made the most of this view to double the location as an Airport for various scenes. Recently both the 2017 hit "Mubarakan" starring Ileana D'Cruz and Vipul Amrutlal Shah's 'Namaste England' in June 2018 starring Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra took over the main atrium to double as their London Airport Location. 

Jacob Hughes-Rodgers from Newham Film Office said: "We have ever-increasing filming taking place in the Borough and being able to attract productions from one of the World's largest film industries has contributed to Newham's film service "taking off" in a big way!"

Newham Film Office is managed by The Film Office who continue to make new council locations available for filming - check out what's available on our Locations Library.
