Big B faces arclights again, but may slow down pace
New Delhi, Mar 22 (UNI) After being away from the arclights for nearly four months due to an abdominal surgery, superstar Amitabh Bachchan is back to facing the movie cameras.
For the first time after undergoing surgery at Mumbai's Lilawati Hospital for diverculitis of small intestine on November 30 last year, the Big B, as the Superstar is lovingly known among his legion of fans, faced the arclights for Karan Johar's 'Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna' on Monday.
Amitabh had last month recorded two songs for Ravi Chopra's 'Babul' and done some dubbing work for Vidhu Vinod Chopra's 'Eklavya'.
His first "tryst with the arclights" after the long gap saw the Big B enact an emotional scene with Rani Mukerji, trade sources said.
Though the scene was canned in a day's time, Amitabh would later this month, on March 30, appear for a photo session for Karan's film. He will also shoot for a song featuring the entire cast of the film.
Trade sources say a major part of the shooting for 'Kabhi Alvida na Kehna' is complete. Mr Bachchan has only to shoot a few scenes with Abhishek.
Then, yesterday, the Big B participated in a shoot for 'Ganga', a Bhojpuri film produced by his make-up man, Deepak Sawant, at the Film City at Goregaon. The film, which is 80 per cent complete except for a few scenes involving Amitabh, has the superstar playing a Thakur.
Big B's role in the film required him to shoot for just five-six days sources added.
