Amitabh Bachchan, who is in the Kutch region of Gujarat to shoot for the promo of its tourism, chose to  dress like Shah Rukh Khan's character in the film ‘Paheli', says a media report.

Big B was looking colorfully handsome in traditional pagri and Kurta worn by local Kutchi people.

He even tweeted about Shah Rukh connection of his dress but King Khan chose to ignore this perhaps due to Narendra Modi's Gujarat connection.

However, this did not dampen the spirit of Big B and  he telephoned son Abhishek Bachchan, who was shooting in Istanbul, and talked about his debut film ‘Refugee', which had been shot by veteran JP Dutta in the same desert area of Bhuj.

Amitabh was impressed with the rich cultural history and diversity of that region. 



Big B later even visited the renowned Somnath temple and Gir lion sanctuary. His signature line for the promotional campaign remains ‘Kutch nahi Dekha to Kuch nahi dekha'.

While shooting in the desert, Amitabh faced strong winds which usually blow in the desert region of Gujarat, but the veteran was undeterred, and in fact, even expressed himself to have become more determined to shoot in the area.

Big B was delighted when informed that by afternoon the  sea will start invading the white desert and he would be able to see water on the surface. In fact, at that point of time too he could see water seeping through surface from beneath across the salty Rann.

The whole shoot also brought out the poetic side of Big B who spoke about the whole experience in a lyrical way as explained by his writing on his bigadda blog.  

As the place where Big B was shooting in the Rann of Kutch was very near to Pakistan border(around sixty km), he was provided with  security by the state government. At the shooting site, only two wheelers like motorbikes were able to ply.
