Bollywood What's Happenin'

Amitabh Bachchan's scooter ride into work

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is known for experimenting with his roles and the actor turned up on the sets of Bhoothnath Returns on an automated scooter. The shot was being filmed at a real location in Versova, Mumbai and due to the on-going construction work there, the roads were blocked and Mr Bachchan’s vanity van and car couldn’t access the area. Since it was a really long walk to the sets, the actor came up with the idea of riding the scooter to beat the traffic.

Confirming this, director Nitesh Tiwari said,

“There was a lot of digging and construction work going on at the Versova location and it was quite a long walk from the parking to the sets. Rather than troubling us or delaying time, Mr. Bachchan came onto the sets on a unique scooter and would zip around in it the whole day! He seemed to be enjoying himself thoroughly and it was quite a nice sight for us too.”

Bhootnath Returns releases in cinemas worldwide on 11th April 2014, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Kishan Kumar, Renu Ravi Chopra and Amitabh Bachchan, and distributed internationally by B4U.
