Indian film makers shoot cafe scene in Crawley town centre


Indian film makers were shooting in Crawley town centre.

Eskay Movies filmed a cafe scene in the Brewery Shades’s outdoor area in Broadwalk. The Bengali romantic comedy Assiqui, which translates as ‘true love’, will be screened in India and Bangladesh later in the year. Its Kolkata-based crew of around 30 people were in the town for the day. Producer Shristy Dhanuka said: “The cafe and the background - it suits our motive. The council is very supportive, they gave us permission to shoot in the High Street.” A spokesman for Crawley Borough Council said it actively promoted Crawley as a filming location. It advised the crew on potential filming locations in town and ensured the filming did not adversely affect the general public. The production company’s film Romeo versus Juliet is available on YouTube.
