Anurag Kashyap is a task master: Big B

Mumbai, June 21 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is making his debut in small screen's fiction space with a show by Anurag Kashyap, says the filmmaker is a task master. But the veteran actor is enjoying it.

"Work scintillating filled with challenge. Anurag Kashyap is a task master and shall not be easily satisfied... I like that," Big B tweeted.

Kashyap had also earlier said the 70-year-old actor is "demanding".

It is for the first time that Kashyap and Big B are working together in a full-fledged project, after shooting a scene for "Bombay Talkies". They are working on a show, co-produced by Bachchan's Saraswati Creations and Endemol, for Sony Entertainment channel. The show is reportedly about social issues.

On the set of the show, Amitabh enjoyed meeting "Gangs of Wasseypur" actress Richa Chadda.

"Anurag introduces me to visiting artist, on set, Richa Chaddha. She is a bundle of talent... an honour to meet her," he further tweeted.

Aditi Rao Hydari, a gol-gappa fan!

Actress Aditi Rao Hydari says she can gorge on street food all day long, and she especially loves pani puri or gol-gappa.

She made the revelation on TV show "Stars In Your City", which airs on UTV Stars. The show explores different cities of the country with some of India's favourite celebrities.

This time, the show hits the streets of the country's city of dreams Mumbai, where Aditi was spotted indulging in different food delights and pampering herself at a spa.

"I love food. I love gol gappa. I don't care how many people are around, I just run to eat gol gappe," she said on the show.

With such love for food and pani puri, one wonders how the actress manages to maintain her figure.

"I believe that one must eat the right amount of food at the right time. And god has been very kind to me that he has given me a small appetite. But I eat everything," she said.

The episode featuring Aditi will go on air Sunday.
