Abhishek Bachchan is currently in Amritsar working on his upcoming project Manmarziyaan. This is his first film in two years. The actor was last seen in Housefull 3 in 2016. Directed by Anurag Kashyap, the film also stars Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal. The ace actor had recently attended the border closing ceremony of the Border Security Force, at the Atari border.
Had the most amazing time yesterday. Thanks to the BSF ( Border Security Force) who invited me to witness the closing of the border ceremony at the Attari border out post. An event I've read so much about and seen much footage of but never had the pleasure to witness in person. It's almost indescribable what one feels during this robust event. Patriotism, pride, admiration, humility, appreciation, regret and many, many more emotions. The pageantry, flair and aggression that is displayed is so overwhelming. Have nothing but love and respect for our armed forces. Truly! It also feels great when they play one of your songs and the crowds love it 😊😉 @iamsrk @farahkhankunder @boman_irani @sonu_sood
On his social media handle, Abhishek posted a picture of him holding up the tricolour while being surrounded by a few soldiers. He also shared a video where the song Indiawaale, from his film Happy New Year can be heard in the background. Abhishek said that he had an ‘amazing time’ and even thanked the BSF for inviting him to the event. He added that he had heard a lot about the event but had never seen it up close before.
Meanwhile, work on Manmarziyaan seems to be going on in full swing as a number of images were shared by junior Bachchan on his Instagram account. The romantic drama is set in Punjab. The film is being co-produced by Aanand L Rai. In an interview to IANS, Taapsee had said that the film “is a beautiful mix of the different worlds of filmmakers Aanand L Rai and Anurag Kashyap.”

With all the images being shared, Amitabh Bachchan too took notice. Senior Bachchan took to social media to share that Abhishek’s look reminded him of his grandfather and also said that they would be proud of his new look. Manmarziyaan is the first film that Abhishek will be working on with Taapsee and Vicky.
