Amitabh Bachchan looking forward to shooting Piku in Kolkata

 Amitabh Bachchan looking forward to shooting Piku in Kolkata

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is excited to visit Kolkata for the second shooting schedule of director Shoojit Sircar's 'next- 'Piku'. The 72-year-old actor started his career as a executive in a company in the city and has shot many films in Kolkata throughout his career.

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," Bachchan posted on his blog.

'Piku' also stars Irrfan Khan, Deepika Padukone, Moushumi Chatterjee and Jishu Sengupta. It explores the father and daughter relationship between Bachchan and Padukone's characters. Besides Kolkata, the film will also be shot in Delhi and parts of Gujarat.

"Delhi has been home for many years.. Its detailing has often been repeated.. But no matter how extensively we may express our feelings for a city that has been your abode for long, it is never enough to completely describe it. "Gujarat is the new home. Those visits for the tourism campaign has given me the love of the lovable affable and most hospitable people of the region," Bachchan said.

Amitabh Bachchan: Insecurity from masses greatest challenge

 Amitabh Bachchan: Insecurity from masses greatest challenge

Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan has seen highs and lows in his over 40-year-old career and the megastar, who enjoys a strong fan base all over the globe, says insecurity from the masses is greatest challenge for celebrities.

The 72-year-old eagerly waits to see his fans gather in front of his house here every Sunday - and the crowds have only grown over the years.

Big B took to his blog Monday to share the systematic routine that he follows each Sunday morning, and how he experiences an adrenaline rush with the "roar of the anticipated crowd".

But when he returns back, he ponders if "this would be the last visit from them...would they still be interested enough to come the next Sunday or not...and on."

"Insecurity from the masses is the greatest challenge one has to face ... those that can, and many do, are blessed...I am not...for me the call from the audience is the moment of reckoning...

"They can deflate you and pick one up, they can elevate you to unknown heights and bring you down with a thump...I have seen it all...the elevation and the deflation... the plateau effect and the effect of stagnation... of the smile among audiences, of de recognition, of shame and victory from it, and the triumph of those that decided to make what you become," he added.

He says "it is a stage that often invites the lessening of the interest...a cause that shall happen to us all in the business".

"Those that can bear it and live with it in peace and understanding are my heroes," added the megastar.

Amitabh Bachchan Makes An Exception For Abhishek

 Amitabh Bachchan Makes An Exception For Abhishek

Kaun Banega Crorepati is a big show. Apart from the fact that it makes crorepati out of ordinary commoners, it also gives them the only opportunity ever to meet the superstar of the millennium, Amitabh Bachchan. The way he interacts with people is simply fascinating and heartwarming. He is also known to follow the rules of the game very closely. But it seems he had to relax one of those rules when his son came calling.

The Happy New Year team was on KBC recently to promote the film. Abhishek Bachchan was also part of the team along with Shah Rukh Khan and others. But since he is Bachchan’s son, the rule of not having family members on the hot seat was relaxed to accommodate him. In Bachchan’s defense, they were on the show for a noble cause. 

The proceeds of the episode would go to a charitable organization and so Bachchan made an exception. Well, we don’t mind. The promos suggest it will be on hilarious Q n A session!
