Abhishek Bachchan loves Kolkata, and the city loves him back. The actor has visited Kolkata after a long hiatus and has been accorded a princely welcome.

Shooting for a new film Bob Biswas on the streets and outdoor locations, Abhishek is constantly mobbed by huge crowds wherever he goes.

 Says Abhishek. “It is very heartening to return to  Kolkata. The last time I shot in this city was for Mani Ratnam’s Yuva in 2003. I’ve also shot for  Rituparno Ghosh’s  Antar Mahal in  Kolkata. Then I also did  Partha Sengupta’s Desh where I played my own mom’s son. Each time, I’ve been given a royal welcome here. It feels like coming home as Bengalis call me their Naati (grandson).”

Abhishek’s mother Jaya Bachchan is Bengali and Jaya’s  father Taroon Coomar Bhaduri  was an eminent  journalist in Kolkata.
