Abhishek Bachchan along with Aishwarya and Aaradhya joined dad Amitabh Bachchan on the sets of Satyagraha in Bhopal
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is set to spend the next three months in his sasural (in-laws’ town) Bhopal, as he begins shooting for Prakash Jha’s new film Satyagraha. The superstar reached Bhopal on Thursday, February 14 (Valentine’s Day) and was accompanied by son Abhishek Bachchan, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and grand-daughter Aaradhya Bachchan, though they went back the same day.
“Here (Bhopal) now for Satyagraha for Prakash Jha with a host of very important talent – Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpayee to name a few. A strong powerful subject, intense and gripping,” Amitabh wrote on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
“I brought along Abhishek and Aishwarya and little Aaradhya too with me in the plane, so they could meet their Nani, Jaya’s mother, who lives here, as also Jaya’s youngest sister and her family. The three A’s went back by the evening,” he posted.
The 70-year-old finds it a tad tedious to move his base for a prolonged period of time, but he is fine with it. “It is going to be a start to finish film, so ‘home’ away from home shall be the city of Bhopal, the ‘son-in-law’s’ city. The ‘jamai’ as they are known in most languages of the country,” he wrote.
“Setting up your room for the next three months, getting stuff from home in correct order has always been an exercise nothing less than moving house, which we all know is an arduous experience by itself. But I am happy to note that a sparse set up seems to be controllable, than one that is filled with material which is hardly used…but there,” he added.
