Filming for a major Bollywood film has started in the centre of Edinburgh.

Scenes for Mausam, which is being made by veteran star Pankaj Kapoor and starring his son Shahid Kapoor, are being shot in The Grassmarket.

Shahid Kapoor is playing the lead role of an air force pilot who falls in love with a young woman.

Trucks with horses, a carriage and dozens of production staff have been in the historic area to set up scenes for the film.
