Amitabh Bachchan spends Thursday shooting with lions, Siddis

Amitabh Bachchan spends Thursday shooting with lions, Siddis

Thursday saw Big B not just meeting his match, but also shooting with them. In Gujarat for an ad film shoot, the Shehenshah of Bollywood spent the better part of Thursday shooting with the Kings of the jungle in the Gir forests.

He also met with members of the local Siddi tribe.

While cyclone Phet did play spoilsport on Wednesday, Thursday was far more productive, and quite a few important shots were canned, said sources from his entourage. The shot with the Siddi tribe turned out to be a very good one, and Bachchan had a really good time while at it, said the source.

The actor was equally happy shooting with the lions in the afternoon, said the source. Reportedly, two designated routes into the forest have been reserved especially for the Big B, for easy entry into the forests that the actor has been frequenting for the last couple of days.

However, the schedules of the shoot are turning out to be quite hectic, say sources. Mostly organised early in the morning or late in the evening, the shoots have reportedly been taking quite a toll on the entourage.

Done with shooting in Gir and the vicinity, Bachchan shall now proceed to the Somnath temple tomorrow, where he shall be stationed for the next two days.

The shoots aside, Bachchan continued tweeting and blogging with the same zest as ever. His blog, late on Thursday evening, came alive with pictures of the Siddi dancers, as also with poetry and an extract of a foreword written by his father, late poet Harivanshrai Bachchan.
