Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has been regularly posting his looks from the upcoming project ‘Gulabo Sitabo’. The Shoojit Sircar film sees him essay the role of an elderly Lakhnawi Muslim landlord in his, while actor Ayushmann Khurrana plays his tenant. The veteran actor is currently in Lucknow to shoot for the film and even uploaded glimpses of his stay in the city. In a recent development, a staff member from the five-star hotel Amitabh is residing in, has expressed disappointment in the ‘Paa’ actor. And guess what he has a problem with? Even we went into a fit of laughter! According to an assistant chef at the hotel, Big B is not a foodie at all.
“We had planned that we would serve an array of ‘kebabs’ and mutton delicacies like ‘nihari’ to the actor but he seems to be favouring only vegetarian food,” mentioned the chef. He added that Amitabh is a careful eater and prefers a glass of milk and scrambled eggs without chillies for his first meal of the day. For lunch, his intake involves two to three rotis with ‘daal’ and vegetables. The cook also stated that Amitabh avoids rice at all costs.
“One day he asked for ‘paneer bhurji’ but he has never made any other demands. When he returns late from shooting, he prefers only soup for dinner. In fact, on some days he has only soup and avoids food,” noted the chef. A member of the film’s crew reported that Bachchan is the most undemanding actor on the sets. “He never makes any request for a particular food and eats puffed rice and grams that are a staple food on the sets,” they revealed. Bachchan is in Lucknow for a month. Last week, he was spotted clad in a lime green kurta and long beard, shooting a scene of chasing a goat on the banks of a river.
