Taare Zameen Par Movie’s shooting location
St. Xavier High School in Mumbai
According to an article on LatLong.net, all school sequences were filmed on location. The production team was looking for a Mumbai school with an old-school feel to establish the heaviness of being in a metropolitan school. They chose St. Xaviers School which is located in Fort, Mumbai. The school is located on the main road hence the production staff placed acrylic sheets on the classroom windows to minimize background noise in the scene where Ishaan was sent out of the classroom.
Shots from South Mumbai tourist points
In the movie, Ishaan walks out of the school unannounced on the day he gets humiliated by the teacher and his classmates and he is seen touring in the city all by himself. Much of these shots were taken in the South Mumbai area. This part consisted of locations from Flora Fountain when he walks out of the school. Then he is seen touring several places including the end of Queen’s Necklace, Marine Drive, and outside of Taj Hotel. The part where he is seen shouting outside the bus window is on the road near Marine Lines.
New Era High School in Panchgani
The second half of the film occurs with Ishaan being sent to a boarding school away from his family. The hostel part of the film was shot in The New Era High School (NEHS) which is located in Panchgani, a hill station town known as an educational center in Maharashtra. The final scenes of the drawing competition were shot in the amphitheatre of the same school.
