Big B fasts Anna Hazare style for 'Satyagraha'
In his fight against corruption, megastar Amitabh Bachchan's character in the upcoming political saga Satyagraha, decides to fast a la real life social activist Anna Hazare.

A poster features Amitabh, with Arjun Rampal and Ajay Devgn on either side, and it reads, "Aamran Anshan (indefinite hunger strike)."

"This is one very crucial moment of Satyagraha where Amitabh Bachchan takes this tough stand against corruption and decides to fast unto death in his fight against corruption," director Prakash Jha told IANS.

Also, the crowds in Bhopal bowled over megastar Amitabh Bachchan with their co-operative nature. The 70-year-old megastar can't stop raving about the "pleasant demeanour" of people in his 'sasural' (in-laws').

"The co-operation of the people of Bhopal is extraordinary. Their discipline, their sense of order, their pleasant demeanours and all that a film unit would expect from an audience when shooting outdoors, is present there in abundance," the 70-year-old posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.

"My salutations to the city and to the people! Thank you for your effort in allowing us to conduct our work in an atmosphere of required peace and comfort," said Big B, whose wife Jaya's family stays in Bhopal.
