Film-maker Shoojit Sircar and Amitabh Bachchan have teamed up to promote tourism in Gujarat. Amitabh Bachchan, who is already the brand ambassador for Gujarat Tourism, will now shoot with Shoojit in the interior parts of Gujarat; specifically the wild areas of the state.
An excited Shoojit says “Bachchan Saab 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. We will also be shooting 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 in camera. There is a very vibrant and prolific wildlife prevalent in the sanctuaries and forests of Gujarat.”
The two will shoot in extreme locations where even the basic facilities are unavailable.
Adds Sircar “It’s going to be a challenging week in Gujarat in the last week of January. Mr Bachchan and I off to explore the wildlife of Gujarat. The creative consultant Piyush Pandey would also be joining us. We’re ready to rough it out.”
