Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is in Bhopal to shoot for his next film Aarakshan, to be directed by noted filmmaker Prakash Jha.
Bachchan along with actress-wife Jaya, landed here last evening at the Raja Bhoj airport.
The veteran actor will be shooting for the first time in the lake city, which also happens to be his ‘Sasural’ (in-laws place).
Bachchan is essaying the role of a College Principal in the film, which went on floors recently.
Besides Big B, actors Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone are in the city for the movie shoot.
