otsoNY Comments: Although the Bollywood filmmakers came to New York to shot part of the film, not everything is quite as it seems. By taking a closer look at these scenes, it is clear to see that the "Blue-Screen" effects were used. The roof-top apartment would have to be situated on 9th or 10th Avenue as the World Trade Center is clearly in line with it, though there are few tall buildings on these avenues and as such the actual roof of the apartment doesn't seem to have an end and looks more like it has been cut out, plus the camera angle itself would is ambitions. Once inside the apartment, the view to the outside do not match any New York buildings.

otsoNY Comments: Brandy's Wine-Bar is supposedly on Park Avenue near Grand Central Terminal. Though when the scene switches to outside of the wine-bar, the car park next to it has a foreign number plate and when the camera pans round to what should be Park Avenue, which it's not and the cars on the street behind the actors do not move because they are clearly not there.

otsoNY Comments: Still on what is supposed to be Park Avenue as Grand Central Terminal can be seen in the background, take note that the building on the left looks completely out of place in New York, and it is obvious to see that this scene was shot in a different country.
