After 'Slumdog Millionaire', Amitabh Bachchan has another date with garbage in his upcoming film, 'Bhootnath Returns'

Remember the iconic scene from 'Slumdog Millionaire' (2008), where the little protagonist approaches Amitabh Bachchan for an autograph?

The catch there being the fact that the boy was covered in filth and yet the superstar doesn’t hesitate to oblige him. In his upcoming film, 'Bhootnath Returns', Bachchan has another date with garbage. His character gathers the city’s garbage and plonks it in a government official’s room in a bid to teach him a lesson.

While shooting this sequence, director Nitesh Tiwari wanted it to look as authentic as possible and so he arranged for more than 30 garbage bins to be emptied near the film set in Madh Island. Bachchan apparently gave the shot without a single grimace at the unbearable stink.
