Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is currently shooting for Bejoy Nambiar's "Do" along with Farhan Akhtar, has recently shared a picture from the film on his social networking site.

"Do" revolves around an ailing wheel-chair stricken chess master, played by Big B, while Akhtar portrays the role of a tough Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer.

In the picture posted by Sr Bachchan on his official Facebook account, both the actors are seen sipping a cup of coffee while a chess board is placed between them.

Going by the image, the film looks promising as both the "Paa" actor and Akhtar look impressive amidst the beautiful backdrop.

The team of "Do" is at present shooting in Hauz Khas, New Delhi. They plan for a 10-day schedule in the city and will reportedly shoot a few portions in India Gate and Jama Masjid as well, reported The Times of India.

Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the intense drama also stars Aditi Rao Hydari.

This is the first time the "Bhag Milkha Bhag" actor will be seen portraying the role of a cop. He is said to be quite excited for the challenging roles.

"Although Farhan has directed Don (2006) and Don 2 (2011) — which saw actors play police officers — he has never essayed the role of a cop himself. And he is very excited to take the first step in a new direction. It will surely be challenging for him," a source close to Akhtar told Hindustan Times.

Incidentally, Akhtar will also be playing as a cop in Shah Rukh Khan starrer "Raees".
