Big B is enjoying the cold wave as it keeps curious onlookers indoors and he can roam freely without being mobbed. Consequently, Shoojit Sarcarís crew is breathing a sigh of relief as the shooting schedule remains unaffected. While other stars run for shelter, Big B is braving the elements and even going for brisk walks. Bachchan reached Manali by road from Chandigarh as his private jet couldnít land at Kullu due to severe weather conditions. On a more romantic note, the actor who had shot other films including Black in Manali and Simla, has never experienced snowfall in the hill resorts before. Bundled up in warm clothes, he took advantage of the deserted location recently to walk around freely. A crew member informs that recently, it started snowing heavily as they were shooting. They had to pack-up and most of us ran for shelter. But Mr Bachchan was far from being worried. He took a brisk walk during the snowfall instead. In fact, he has been encouraging fellow cast and crew members to enjoy the weather.
The superstar Amitabh also shot a few scenes at the Snow and Avalanche Study Establishment (SASE) in Manali. The study centre was converted into a hospital for the film where Bachchan, as a part of the plot, is admitted with acute foot injuries caused by his footwear.
