Amitabh Bachchan duplicate upsets locals
25 Jan 2008. Amitabh Bachchan is presently shooting for Shoojit Sircar’s untitled project in Patlikuhal, a few kilometers away from Manali in Himachal Pradesh. Interestingly, Krrish was shot at the same location. 

All for nothing: Ever since the news of Bachchan shooting in their midst hit the small town, people from all over flocked to see the actor. However, they were disappointed when they spotted a duplicate instead.

An insider adds, “We were doing an important scene with Mr Bachchan. 

But since he wasn’t available, we went ahead with a duplicate.” The scene was shot on the banks of the Beas river.” 

Security had to be called to control the crowd who got unruly after they realised that they’d covered long distances for nothing. 

A unitwalla adds, “The people who had gathered, wanted to take autographs and photos with Amitabh. Some of them had travelled for almost three hours from the interiors. 

To pacify them, we promised them that Amitabh would be shooting later and asked them to come back then.” 

A production guy who didn’t want to be named confirms, “Mr. Bachchan was supposed to shoot with us on Monday. But he couldn’t make it. Since the weather was clear, we decided not to wait for him and go ahead with the duplicate instead.

The lighting was perfect for the scene so it was pointless to waste the opportunity. He arrived in Manali on Tuesday and has been shooting with us since.”

Bachchan arrived here late Tuesday by road from Chandigarh, as his plane could not land due to bad weather in Kullu Monday.
The resort town of Manali received heavy snowfall this year and sources said Sircar has short-listed a host of locations here to shoot for the film. Actor Diya Mirza is also joining the unit in a couple of days, the sources said.
