Looks like Bachchans have a strong connection with Bhopal. According to sources, while senior Bachchan was shooting for Prakash Jha’s film, Satyagraha in Bhopal, he used his free time to scour for a suitable residential property to set up another home.
Interestingly, the legendary actor has a special connection with the city as his wife Jaya’s mother Indira resides there. It is said that the Bachchans already have two flats and some land in Bhopal. This time AB is apparently interested in buying a property at the outskirts of the city of lakes.
The source adds, “Bachchan saab was here for the shooting of Prakash Jha’s movie and he had earlier expressed how he likes the place for its lush green ambience.”
Apparently Big B had stayed back for a day after the shooting to finish some work and the hunt is still on for the coveted property.
Another source from Bhopal revealed that someone close to the Bachchans had mentioned that the family loves the city so much that he took the latest addition in the family -- granddaughter Aaradhya -- to his mother-in-law’s place. Even during his earlier shooting schedule for Satyagraha, he was seen visiting his favourite places in the city.
Bachchan remained unavailable for comment.
