The veteran actor goes on a punishing diet to shoot for the hunger strike scenes in his upcoming film

It seems Amitabh Bachchan is rather excited shooting for Prakash Jha’s upcoming film Satyagraha. The movie which is about social activist Anna Hazare and his protests against corruption in India, has Amitabh playing a role based on Anna, and the veteran actor is taking it quite seriously.

And since Anna was on hunger strike for quite some time during the protests, Amitabh too will be recreating the same for the big screen. And the 70-year-old actor has gone into a serious diet control mode to look authentic for the scene. According to sources from the sets, Big B has stopped conversing with other unit members besides the director, so as to conserve his energy and give a better performance on screen.

Yet, unlike other actors who shout out from treetops when they get into method acting, Big B chose to be modest about it and didn’t mention that he was on a near-starvation diet. Instead, he was rather cheerful about the punishing schedule that he was on, and even joked about it on his blog. The actor said, “I am to report on set by 8 AM … in a condition for my scene, that the character has subjected himself to … one that may not have eaten for several days !!! Now … before I do a fainting spell much like Mr Hoffman on set, I wish all of you good night or morning …”

Well, looks like Amitabh Bachchan is really doing all it takes to get into the skin of the character and we are sure we will love what we see! Meanwhile, check out the many moods of Amitabh and the cast and crew of Satyagraha from the sets of the film.
