Well-known south Indian actor-filmmaker Ravi Babu surprised many when he was seen holding a piglet in a bank queue in Hyderabad.

On being asked about the piglet, Babu said that the former is going to play a character in his next movie, "Adhugo" and he was taking it to the computer graphics lab. But he had to stop at the bank to withdraw money as he ran out of fuel, reports BBC.

Speaking to IANS, Babu said, "Wherever I go these days, I take the piglet along. I can't leave him at home because there's nobody to take care. I had to withdraw cash from the bank, so I decided to take the piglet with me. Although people were a little surprised to see it, nobody made a fuss out of it." 

Babu informed that 'Bunty' will play the central character and is one of 25 pigs being reared to star in the film.

Babu raised a few piglets in his friend's farm for the film. While most of the film was shot with live piglet, they used animatronics to shoot a few sequences. He says it's the first time an Indian film has used a piglet.
