This weekend Orchard Street, between Rivington and Delancey, became a Bollywood set. Store owners were heard complaining to the police that it would "Disturb their business", but everyone else enjoyed the scene. The officers let the store owners know that they should file a complaint with the NYC film commission if they had a problem, though they clearly didn't realize the film set was bringing more foot traffic to their storefronts. Here are some photos, did anyone else come across the set?

From a passerby, "most Hindi films have at least some element of humor, but each scene they were filming was funny, leading me to believe it was, in fact, a comedy. They had a bunch of young Indian kids doing the "background action"; probably NYU students, but didn't confirm that."
