Mumbai, Jan 27 (Calcutta Tube) After retaining the same appearance for the last 11 years, Amitabh Bachchan has suddenly turned experimental about his looks. First he decided to sport a trimmed beard and new hairstyle in ‘Aarakshan’ and now for ‘Boodha‘, the Big B will dye his beard and hair into a flamboyant trendy colour!
The colour is yet to be decided. According to insiders from the frantically-experimental unit, Big B would either sport a red-tinted beard and hair in the movie — which will be directed by Telugu maverick Puri Jagannath — or it could be various flamboyant colours.
When contacted, Jagannath said: ‘That’s right. Bachchan sir is going totally psychedelic for his part in ‘Boodha’. You see, he plays a man who is 60 but believes he’s still 25. So he moves around dressed and made up like today’s youngster. And if anyone calls him a boodha (old man) he is livid. He will be dyeing his beard and wig.’
Even the clothesline for Big B in ‘Boodha’ would be in keeping with his character of a man of 25. Apparently, the megastar would be borrowing accessories from his son Abhishek’s wardrobe.
The film will go on floors next month.
