MUMBAI - 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.
