Sasural Bhopal: new home for Amitabh Bacchan


By Hindustan Times

After a much-talked-about visit to Mumbai’s Siddhivinayak temple with his entire family on Wednesday, actor Amitabh Bachchan reached Bhopal on Thursday, along with son Abhishek, daughter-in-law Aishwarya and grand-daughter Aaradhya.

However, this isn’t going to be a quick stop as the city that also happens to be Big B’s sasural (in-laws’ town) will be his home for the next three months, where he will shoot for Prakash Jha’s new film, Satyagraha.

“Here (Bhopal) now for Satyagraha for Prakash Jha with a host of very important talent — Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpayee to name a few,” the 70-year-old wrote on his blog on Friday. “It is going to be a start to finish film, so home away from home shall be the city of Bhopal, the son-in-law’s city. The jamai as they are known in most languages of the country,” added Bachchan.

“Setting up your room for the next three months, getting stuff from home in correct order has always been an exercise nothing less than moving house... I brought along Abhishek and Aishwarya and little Aaradhya too with me in the plane, so they could meet their Nani, Jaya’s mother, who lives here, as also Jaya’s youngest sister and her family. The three A’s went back by the evening,” he further posted.
