Crash! Wallop! as stunt stars are let Luas on city

THIS is what happens when Bollywood meets Dublin.

The show-stopping scenes of Luas crashes and bar brawls brought parts of the capital to a standstill over the weekend.

Onlookers were treated to some spectacular stunts as final scenes for new Bollywood film Ek Tha Tiger were filmed in the heart of the city -- and they didn't disappoint the Sunday strollers.

Passers-by caught a glimpse of the camera work as stunt doubles smashed through glass doors on to safety mattresses and sported cuts and bruises for the upcoming Bollywood flick -- which features a Luas replica and a red pick-up truck.

With roads sealed off along the quays of the Liffey, makers shot final scenes for the Indian film that saw a dramatic Luas tram crash on Mount Street.

Dozens of people were eager to take in the movie magic, as a stunt double for Indian actor Salman Khan bounded over the roofs of cars.
