Out On the Pier
Lady Liberty Meets Bollywood
Onlookers said Monday that Bollywood movie stars Shahrukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee were on hand filming in Jersey City. Although no one claimed to have seen the stars up-close, that didn't dampen their spirits as they waited alongside the balmy sea.
All these people snuck out of work to catch a glimpse of the Bollywood stars working on the innaccessible pier.
JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- The midday lunch crowd at Exchange Place on the Hudson River clammored for a glimpse of Shahrukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee - movie stars from India.
Alas the water, the wind and the weather worked agains fans who nonetheless had to return to work in nearby office buildings.
In the distance beyond the film crew on the battered J. OWEN GUNDY PARK, Lady Liberty kept watch across New York Harbor.
One onlooker graciously wrote down the stars names and suggested we 'GOOGLE' it.
