Megastar Amitabh Bachchan will start shooting for movie Bhootnath 2, a sequel to 2008 movie Bhootnath today (Wednesday).

The 70-year-old, who was last seen in Satyagraha will reprise his role as a friendly ghost in the movie.

The actor shared the update via microblogging site Twitter.

“Another new film Bhootnath 2 starts tomorrow [Wednesday] and as my make up Deepak Sawant would say ‘ek aur meter down ho gaya’ (another meter down),” Big B posted in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Even after so many years in filmdom, Big B is nervous before starting a fresh project.

“Then there is the look test for Bhootnath 2 starting shoot tomorrow. First day of new projects are such a fright! Bhootnath,” he added.

Bhootnath 2 will be directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced by T-Series. It is expected to release in summer 2014.
