Megastar Amitabh Bachchan visited Rishikesh, Uttarakhand recently and photos of him performing a puja have surfaced on the internet. He is seen doing the Parmarth Ganga Aarti alongside Swami Chidananda Saraswati in the photos.
The Jhund actor wore a traditional outfit for the occasion and donned a grey kurta with a light blue jacket and his distinctive glasses. In another photo, he is seen sitting next to Swami Chidananda Saraswati on the stairs of what appears to be a Ganga ghat in Rishikesh, discussing thoughts.

Amitabh is currently in Rishikesh for the shooting of his upcoming 'Goodbye' with Rashmika Mandanna. Previously, he was in Lucknow for the shooting of filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s ‘The Umesh Chronicles’.
Helmed by Pooja Kaul, the film will reportedly star the megastar in a cameo role of a taxi driver, for which he shot scenes at the city's station in old Lucknow.
