Amitabh Bachchan's scooter ride
Last week, Big B turned up on the sets of Bhootnath Returns riding an automatic scooter. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced by Bhushan Kumar and Abhay Chopra, filming for this film was underway at a location in Versova.
With construction work in the neighbouring areas blocking up many roads, reaching the sets in a vanity van or a car was no longer possible. Given that it’s a long walk from the parking area to the sets, Big B decided to come up with a fun and innovative solution that didn’t even inconvenience the crew.
Sources say that for two to three days, the actor travelled from the parking lot to the sets by riding in on an automatic scooter. It seems that the superstar had a ball as he travelled across the sets on this scooter.
Says director Nitesh Tiwari, “There was a lot of digging and construction work going on near our location and we couldn’t get our cars inside. At the same time, it was quite a long walk from the parking lot to the sets. But Mr Bachchan was a sport as he rode an automatic scooter to the sets. He seemed to love zipping around the place on it.”
