Australia has become a hot shooting destination for Bollywood. At this moment two major units are making films there.

While Siddharth Anand is busy shooting with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone for Yash Raj Films, director Ajit Pal has been shooting major cricket scenes for his film Victory with his leading man Harman Baweja and real-life cricketers in a huge outdoor stadium in Sydney.

The schedule for Victory was completed Jan 23, but Harman decided to stay back for two days.

"Just to chill and to bring in my sister Rowena's birthday. She has come here to join me for her birthday," Harman told IANS.

Earlier, Anand shot his Salaam Namaste in Melbourne, and Farhan Akhtar too filmed some major parts of his Dil Chahta Hai in Sydney and Sajid Khan's hit comedy Heyy Babyy was made in the same city.
