Amid fears of international terrorism taking place in several corners of the world, a recent blast took place in London, on Lambeth Bridge, blowing up a double decker bus. But it was not a cause of concern.

One might be wondering how can a bomb blast not be a cause of concern in this day and age. In actuality, the blast which frightened many passersby in London was actually for an upcoming Hollywood movie.

The blast was so realistic that it reminded people of the horrific bus bombing in 2005. Although this stunt was all for fiction and filming purposes, it did leave many baffled initially.

The scene, which took place on Sunday 7th February, was a control explosion, for which Lambeth Bridge was closed. The new film, 'The Foreigner', stars Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan.

The renowned author of the Shopaholic novels, Sophie Kinsella wasn't too please with the commotion the blast had made. She wrote on Twitter, “Hey film types, next time you blow up a bus on Lambeth Bridge maybe tell us first so children in park aren't freaked?”
