A superstar by then, when Amitabh Bachchan came to Kolkata in 1975 to shoot for the song ‘ Luk Chhip Luk Chhip’ from the film ‘ Do Anjaane’, all hell broke loose at the Shibpur Botanic Garden.
An excited janta thronged the jetty as he took a steamer to the shooting spot. As the boat pushed out, hundreds dived into the river to catch a glimpse of his. He captured the euphoria on his 8mm camera. In the story shared by him on his blog, Bachchan says how a fan swam across the Hooghly to get his autograph. While swimming back, his paper got lost in the waters, but it was the moment that counted.

Amitabh Bachchan, who started his career as an executive of a British managing agency in Kolkata, has often introduced himself as the ‘son-in-law’ of Bengal because of his marriage to Jaya Bhaduri.
Bachchan’s first brush with the silver screen happened here, when Mrinal Sen, taking note of his baritone after an audition, selected him for a voice-over as the narrator in Bhuvan Shome (1969).
