For shooting purposes, the production team of ‘Breathe: Into the Shadows’ also travels to Mumbai, the capital city of Maharashtra. Situated southwest of Salsette Island, Mumbai is considered India’s de facto financial center. Moreover, being the home to Bollywood, it makes for a suitable filming site for different kinds of productions, including ‘Breathe: Into the Shadows.’
Many key scenes, especially for the debut season, were taped on location in Jaipur, the capital and largest city of Rajasthan. The city is a popular Indian tourist destination and serves as a gateway to several other tourist destinations in Rajasthan, including Jodhpur, Udaipur, Mount Abu, and Jaisalmer. Over the years, Jaipur has hosted the production of many Bollywood as well as Hollywood movies and TV shows, such as ‘The Fall,’ ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,’ ‘Bajirao Mastani,’ and ‘Mismatched.’
Pivotal portions of the sophomore iteration were lensed in Nainital, a mountain resort town in the state of Uttarakhand, India. Several scenes depicting Avinash’s childhood were recorded in the city.
