About 50 dancers went through their paces on busy Druitt Street yesterday morning, filming a pivotal scene for the Bollywood film, Heyy Babyy.

Hundreds of shoppers, city workers and tourists stopped for an exclusive preview of the film which has been in production in Sydney for the past two weeks.

The filmmakers have used a number of Sydney landmarks as locations, including the historic St Stephen's Church in Newtown and the central business district.

Bollywood directors have started to love Australia and Sydney is becoming an attractive destination for them. The report also wrote:

While Sydney has been used before by Indian filmmakers, this is the first time the city has featured so prominently.

The story follows the fortunes of three playboy bachelors who find a baby has been anonymously left in their care. They travel to Australia where they track down their former girlfriends to identify which one might be the baby's mother.
