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.
Bachchan is presently in Lucknow for the shooting of Shoojit Sircar’s “Gulabo Sitabo” and is staying at a local five-star hotel. The actor’s eating habbits may shock you because despite being the superstar of Bollywood, he prefers a very simple diet. As revealed by one of the assistant chefs, the actor is a frugal eater and prefers a glass of milk and egg bhurji’ (scrambled eggs) for breakfast with no chillies.

For lunch, Bachchan takes two or three rotis with dal (without garnishing) and green vegetables. The actor avoids eating rice.
“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,” the hotel staff said. A member of the film’s crew, meanwhile, said that Bachchan was 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,” the member said.

Bachchan is here for a month-long schedule of the film that is being shot in parts of the old city, mostly indoors. 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.
