When Parmish Verma shot the music video of his chart buster Punjabi song `aa le chakk main aa gya’ at Kikar Lodge, not many Punjabi artists knew about this outdoor location right here in `sadda-Punjab.’ Since then we have had many singers throng the quaint resort….notably Happy Raikoti’s Naina also.
This one song brought a whole host of production houses to the doorstep of Kangar Village in Noorpur Bedi. And today Kikar Lodge is famous for having had almost a dozen songs shot here.
In addition to songs the breathtaking views at Kikar Lodge are also being used for pre-wedding shoots and destination weddings.
Not to be left behind are the people from Punjab especially Ludhiana who want to cash in on the growing craze of the resort close by. Most upmarket kitty parties are now being held at Kikar Lodge. “Kikar Lodge has its plus points of being close by with all facilities like swimming pools, good food and drinks and activities for the children too,’’ states Jugnu Sandhu who just attended a kitty party at the Lodge.
Kikar Lodge is also a blessing for the pocket friendly who want the tag of `going out of town for a kitty’ but do not want to spend so much.
Amarinder Singh, CEO Kikar Lodge said, “Yes. We have seen a rise in the number of kitty’s and song videos being shot here in recent times. It could also be due to the fact that people want to unwind in environment friendly surroundings.’’

Thus, the resort offers a memorable stay coupled with the thrill and excitement of staying close to animals and birds in their natural habitat.
