Amitabh Bachchan says he is all set to shoot for filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s Piku.

The actor has just returned from Jaipur where he was accompanied by his granddaughter Aaradhya and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai to cheer for Jaipur Pink Panthers, a Pro Kabaddi League franchise owned by his son Abhishek.

And now he is ready for another challenge.

“Back to Mumbai... in a couple of hours to face another challenge... the camera for Shoojit’s film,” Bachchan posted on his blog on Sunday morning.

It has been a busy year for the 71-year-old, who was part of the TV series Yudh and is the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati 8.

Sircar is known for films such as Madras Cafe and Vicky Donor.

Piku also stars Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan. It will hit the screens on April 30, 2015.
