Shoojit Sircar shoots with Big B in Gujarat

Mumbai, Jan 27: As a part of the endeavour to enhance Gujarat’s tourism, filmmaker Shoojit Sircar will shoot with megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is also the brand ambassador for Gujarat Tourism, in wildlife areas of the state.

The idea would be to focus on the prolific wildlife prevalent in the sanctuaries and forests of Gujarat.

“Bachchan Saab (Big B) and I are heading for various places in Gujarat to shoot images of birds and animals. The wild ass in the Rann Of Kutch is famous. So we head there to capture them on camera in all their unfettered glory,” said Sircar.

“We will also shoot the images of black bucks and many species of birds. Do you know, numerous species of birds migrate to Gujarat in the winter and then leave after the season is over. We want to capture these birds on camera. There is a very vibrant and prolific wildlife prevalent in the sanctuaries and forests of Gujarat,” he added.

Big B and Sircar intend to rough it out in the wild terrain, visiting places where no basic amenities are available.

“It’s going to be a challenging week in Gujarat in the last week of January. Mr Bachchan and me are off to explore the wildlife of Gujarat. The creative consultant Piyush Pandey would also be joining us. We’re ready to rough it out,” said the filmmaker.
