-33 degrees in Ladakh prompted this Twitter post from Big B

Mumbai, India doesn’t experience much of a winter, so when Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan travelled to Ladakh recently, he was in for a rather freezing surprise. 

Having travelled to the northern region for a commercial shoot, Big B encountered a teeth chattering temperature of -33 degrees, prompting him to tweet, “Went to Ladakh and back... minus 33 degrees. Even this could not save me from the cold!!" 

The 78-year-old Bachchan, who is a COVID-19 survivor, accompanied the post with a picture of himself in Ladakh where he can be seen wearing snow goggles, a thick winter cap, jacket and gloves. 

The actor’s future projects include Mayday with Rakul Preet Singh and Ajay Devgn, Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt and Chehre with Emraan Hashmi.
