SCENES for a multi-million pound Bollywood “revenge drama” were being shot in Worcester this week.

Actors Kriti Kharbanda and Jim Sarbh were spotted on the High Street on Monday afternoon filming scenes for Taish, which is due for release next year.

An onlooker, who did not wish to be named, said she was in the city centre with her husband and granddaughter and they walked past in the background while the cameras were rolling.

“We came round the corner and walked straight into the film. I was saying: ‘quick, get out of the scene!’” she told the Worcester News.

“They were doing it all very traditional Bollywood, running and holding hands.”

She said everyone seemed to be stopping to have a look at what was going on, while the actors dodged in and out of the crowds in a guerilla-style shoot.

“They [the actors] ran into a couple and tried to go round and past them.”

She said there were about 30 cast and crew members around Pret a Manger, while the two stars were happy to pose for a photo.

“They were lovely. They wanted me to get into the picture too but my hair hadn’t been done and looked a mess,” she added.

Written and directed by Bejoy Nambiar and produced by Crayon Films, Ease My Trip & Gateaway Pictures and Zee Studios, it started shooting in July.

With production based entirely in the UK, scenes were also shot in the historic court room in Kidderminster Town Hall in September.

The overnight shoot was the first time the hall had been used in a film.
