    Don't be alarmed Saturday if you see what appears to be FBI helicopters and SWAT team members shooting guns high above Center City -- just look for the cameras.

    A Bollywood film crew will shoot the entire scene for an upcoming movie, according to the Greater Philadelphia Film Office.

    "The scene involves at least two helicopters which will be dressed as FBI machinery and will have stunt men acting as SWAT agents suspended from the aircraft and shooting blanks," the GPFO said in a release.

    The entire scene plays out Saturday, October 11 between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the area surrounding the PNC Building at 16th and Market Streets.

    Philadelphia has been a hot spot recently for Bollywood projects, according to a recent Philly Mag article.
