Big B cycles for Piku in Kolkata

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was on Sunday back to the city from where he started his celluloid journey, riding a bicycle past the iconic Writers’ Building here.

Wearing a loose cap, which covered part of his bearded face and with a pot belly, Bachchan was shooting for Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming flim Piku which explores father-daughter relationship. 

While Bachchan will play the role of the father, Deepika Padukone, who will be teaming up with him for the first time, will essay the role of his daughter. 

The day being a Sunday, the busy B B D Bagh area, which is the central business district of Kolkata, was deserted and Bachchan cycled with ease in front of the majestic gothic-styled Writers’ Building. 
Incidentally, the Writers’ Building being a high security area is a no-cycle zone. 

The 72-year-old actor also cycled for a small stretch on the Red Cross Place which is flanked by imposing colonial buildings on both sides.
