Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who will next be seen in the upcoming Bollywood film ‘Piku’, has shot quite a lot of scenes in Kolkata and was also snapped cycling on the streets while shooting.
Big B and Kolkata’s connection goes a long way and the megastar feels that whenever you feel depressed you should visit the “City Of Joy”.
At the trailer launch of ‘Piku’ which is directed by Shoojit Sircar and produced by NP Singh, Big B said: “I did my first job in Kolkata and I stayed there for eight years.
“I keep visiting there often as I cannot forget the environment and atmosphere there.
“I keep on telling my co-stars that whenever you are feeling depressed go to Kolkata. The people there are so passionate that they will awaken you.
With how ever many years I have spent and whatever I have learned there, you might get to see a part of it in the film.
“What more should I say, it is always great to go back to a place where you have stayed and worked before. It makes me nostalgic and all the old memories flash in front of me.
He said that he always tries to visit the places where he has stayed and worked. He even said that he tries to see his old boss and the people who he used to work with whenever he can.
Further telling us about his special Kolkata connection Big B said: “Like you all must know, I am Kolkata’s son-in-law as my wife is a Bengali, so this bond cannot break only.”
‘Piku’ also stars Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan in the lead and is will release on 8th May.
