The glittering Megastar and Shehenshah of tinselville, Amitabh Bachchan has a deep-rooted connect with the City of Joy, Kolkata and the superstar is delighted to visit the city again for the second leg of Shoojit Sircar’s Piku.
We know Sr Bachchan is an avid blogger and pens his thoughts everyday. In his recent blog Amitji got reminiscent of the days he spent in Kolkata, where he worked as an executive for seven years, before he stepped foot in the Bollywood Industry.
“I see some cut and edited scenes from Piku with Shoojit as we discuss the next schedule in Kolkata, Delhi and Gujarat, a longish outdoor. Kolkata shall bring back old memories of my seven year stint as an executive in a company. It shall bring back the films shot there. The love and the passion of Bengal is overwhelming. Whenever in doubt or discomfort of your disposition, visit Kolkata. The people shall pick you up as their own and fill you with their cheer and affection. Always,” Mr Bachchan posted on his blog.
Shoojit’s Piku has a huge star cast and along with Shehenshah it also stars Irrfan Khan, Deepika Padukone, Moushumi Chatterjee and Jishu Sengupta. It is the tale that explores the father and daughter relationship between Bachchan and Padukone’s characters. The second leg of shooting is to commence soon in Kolkata.
