The famous Norwegian landmark Preikestolen has been moved to India!! At least that’s what the latest Mission Impossible movie wants you to believe.

Are you planning to go to the movies this weekend? If so, you should consider watching Mission Impossible 6, which premieres in India tomorrow.  In this movie, you are in for a Norwegian treat with the well-known landmark Preikestolen (pulpit rock) transported to India.

Located by the Norwegian fjord Lysefjorden, close to the city of Stavanger, Preikestolen is a famous stop for thousands of adventurous tourists annually. Last year, Tom Cruise and the rest of the Mission Impossible cast spent two weeks at the massive rock formation, filming the ending scenes of the movie, in which it has become a part of the mountains of Kashmir.

Mission impossible is not the first movie shot at Preikestolen. A couple of Indian movies such as Santhu Straight Forward has also had the landmark as their backdrop. The most recent, shot in 2017, was shot with funding from the Norwegian Embassy in India.

If you want to sit back and enjoy first-class action and bedazzling Norwegian and Indian landscapes, you can watch the movie trailer for Mission Impossible 6 here.
