Big B’s bicycle diaries during Piku shoot

People in the eastern metropolis Thursday woke up to a very curious sight! Megastar Amitabh Bachchan cycled past a bronze statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on horseback in one of Kolkata’s busiest intersections while shooting for Shoojit Sircar’s Piku.

Clad in a pink kurta, half-sweater and hat, Big B deftly pedalled past buses and cycles early morning just as the traffic kicked-in around the landmark 45-year-old statue at the Shyambazar five-point crossing in north Kolkata.

The statue, sculpted by Nagesh Yoglekar, was unveiled by the Calcutta Municipal Corporation (now Kolkata Municipal Corporation) in 1969. This was Bachchan’s second outing on a cycle since Sunday.
