New Delhi, June 11 (Calcutta Tube) Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn’s look in the upcoming film ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai‘ is inspired by Amitabh Bachchan‘s iconic look in the Hindi film ‘Deewar‘, says director Milan Luthria.
Set in the 1970’s, the film sees Ajay donning a purely white ensemble, similar to what Amitabh wore in ‘Deewar’.
‘I happened to see ‘Deewaar’ and loved Amitji’s all-white look when he goes for his father’s funeral in the film. I realised that the look would work for Ajay as he looks good in white. Ajay wears white throughout the film. It gives him a different identity,’ Luthria said in a press statement.
Before settling on the ‘all white’ look for Ajay, whose role is said to be inspired by infamous gangster Haji Mastan, the team had tried 37 costumes.
Due for a July 30 release, the crime thriller follows the rise of Sultan (Ajay Devgn), and the conflict, when his protege Shoaib (Emraan Hashmi), challenges his supremacy, and usurps power to rule the murky underbelly of Mumbai.
