Amitabh Bachchan shooting in snow covered Manali

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is presently in this picturesque tourist resort shooting for Sujit Sircar's "Shoe Bite".

Bachchan arrived here late Tuesday by road from Chandigarh, as his plane could not land due to bad weather in Kullu Monday.

The resort town of Manali received heavy snowfall this year and sources said Sircar has short-listed a host of locations here to shoot for the film.

Actor Diya Mirza is also joining the unit in a couple of days, the sources said.

According to hotel sources, Bachchan is scheduled to stay for five days in and around Manali and then move to the Himachal Pradesh capital Shimla, 280 km away, for more shooting of the same film.
