First Look: Amitabh Bachchan's grey look in ‘Shamitabh’
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan tweeted the images of the much awaited movie of R. Balki’s ‘Shamitabh’. Dressed in blue jeans and white shirt, Big B sports the look of an old man. He was resting on a chair.
"'Shamitabh' in the day .. its quite an effort to live with that hair all day !!" he wrote.
The film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush and Akshara Haasan. This is Akshara's debut movie.
Amitabh has been experimenting with his looks over the years and very easily get into the character he plays on-screen. He was spotted shooting at Mumbai Lokhandwala Gardens on May 31.
“The shoot for Balki .. for SHAMITABH .. at Madh Island, once an isolated picnic spot, now inhabited by the overflowing metropolis .. we would come here to spend week ends .. even had a little cottage by the sea .. where on an occasion the entire family of 12 of us, my brother’s and mine, came for a week end and stayed back for 3 months … operating from this little one and a half bedroom roof .. but what fun !!” wrote Big B.R. Balki directed Big B in 'Cheeni Kum' and 'Paa' and he is once again working with the 71-year-old actor in 'Shamitabh'.
"We are half way through shoot of the film... Once we finish the film, we can talk more about it. Right now I am enjoying watching lethal combination of the intensity of Amitabh Bachchan, intelligence of Dhanush and innocence of Akshara (actor Kamal Haasan's daughter) in action, daily," Balki said.
‘Shamitabh’ is slated to release in 2015.
