Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog: Bahut samay baad , Kalkotta ki sadak par scooter chalaya. Itni saari yadeein saamne aa gayein. Bagal mein chalne lagein, hamare saath khelne lagein. Apni vesh bhusha badal li aur Nawazuddin Saheb ko peeche baitha liya

Amitabh Bachchan is filming again in the City of Joy and navigated Kolkata's weekend traffic in a scooter, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui riding pillion. The actors, who were shooting for director Ribhu Dasgupta's Te3N, 'travelled in one pair of jacket and pants to search for jobs,' Big B later wrote in his blog.

Big B, who lived and worked in Kolkata in the Sixties before he became an actor, confessed to being filled with 'nostalgia' as he rode through past the Maidan and the Race Course, down Park Street and Red Road, and through the neighbourhood of Ballygunge. They also travelled by tram from Tollygunje to Esplanade, 'at times hanging out of the doors for lack of space but somehow enjoying the experience of the first struggle.'
Hours of shooting seem to have left Amitabh Bachchan 'sleep deprived.'
Their final destination in the evening was Victoria Memorial, where they gorged on the roadside snack 'puchka.'
Big B had high praise for the people of the city. The actor posted on his blog, "Such universal presence in opinion is rare and exemplary and so are the Kolkatans. Rare, passionate, wise and filled with the senses of all that is of value and tradition."
These images posted on Amitabh Bachchan's blog and Facebook provide more glimpses of his journey.

Amitabh Bachchan last filmed Piku in Kolkata and wrote fondly of his time in the city on his blog, recalling eating puchkas at Victoria Memorial, haunting Park Street hotspots Trincas, Blue Fox and Mocambo and watching movies at Lighthouse Cinema. Nawazuddin has also filmed in the city before, for his breakout role in Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani.
