Amitabh Bachchan starts shooting for Gangotri

After being away from work for over two months for Abhishek-Aishwarya wedding, Amitabh Bachchan returns to shooting again for a Bhojpuri film, Gangotri which is a sequel to Ganga (Bhojpuri) .

This is the second time that Bachchan has returned to do a Bhojpuri film after a break. He did Ganga, the first part of Gangotri, three months after his discharge from the hospital in December 2005.

Confirming the news, producer Deepak Sawant, who has been Bachchan's make-up man for three decades now, says, "It's a big thing for me. I'll always be obliged to Amitji for doing my movies. He'll be shooting for five days at Film City, taking forward his character of Thakur from Ganga."

Manoj Tiwari and Nagma, who played the lead in Ganga, will be there in the sequel. Bhumika Chawla, who has been added to the cast in the sequel,will play the title role of Gangotri.

Ravi Kissen too will be making his presence felt in the sequel. It's believed that talks are on with Hema Malini, who played Bachchan 's wife in Ganga, to play a cameo in this one.
