As of now, Amitabh Bachchan will be visiting Saputara, for the third phase of his ad shoot for Gujarat Tourism. Sources in the state government said, "Out of seven ad films, which have time duration of 1 minute each, three films are already made and released, three films are under production and the last will be shot at Saputara, the only hill station of Gujarat located in the Dangs.
