He is a legend but so is the location he is recently shooting at! Amitabh Bachchan was recently seen in work mode at one of Mumbai’s most historical venues, CSMT aka Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus. The actor not only was in awe of its beauty and architecture but he also dedicated an entire piece about the experience on his blog.
Fans of the Bollywood megastar would be aware that Amitabh Bachchan is really fond of his blog. He often shares this thoughts, opinions and many-a-times also his shoot experiences on this platform. One such instance of the same is this post about CSMT. He not only shared a series of pictures of the location but also wrote a small piece about the railway station.
Amitabh wrote, “Working at the CSMT .. the Chatrapati Sivaji Maharaj Terminus, the Railway terminus and the iconic structure of the city .. was known as VT .. Victoria Terminus during the time of the British, presumably after their Queen Victoria .. now changed after our Independence to our great warrior and ruler the iconic figure of Shivaji in his remembrance ..” He went on to add, “The ornate nature of its construct for what .. a Railway station .. !! the respect and the importance of this travel medium given such magnanimous presence .. This is what it looked like at the time of its making and then now .. and then now .. 130 year old building and the making like a Palace .. for a railway station .. ??”
For the non-Mumbaikars, the CSMT is not just a historical site in the city but also an important station. Most of the outstation trains have CSMT as the starting point. It also houses the biggest wholesale market and street fashion shops of the city.
Speaking of Amitabh Bachchan’s work commitments, the megastar recently hinted at kicking off the season 10 of Kaun Banega Crorepati. Last seen in the sleeper hit 102 Not Out, the megastar will next be seen in Thugs of Hindostan, Brahmastra among others.
