Big B is seen slouching on a chair in an intense rugged look with grey unkempt moustaches and beard. His look surely reminds us of his ‘angry young’ days.
Amitabh Bachchan tweeted the pic saying, ” Shamitabh in the day .. its quite an effort to live with that hair all day !!”
He also admitted that it has become increasingly difficult to preserve the look of the film, posting on his blog, “…………It is getting exceedingly difficult to preserve a look for a film or occasion when we have millions of mobile cameras following us and immortalising us… Thank you.”
Bachchan has himself declared that the meaning of Shamitabh means nothing. He had tweeted out earlier, “#SHAMITABH … THE TITLE OF MY NEW FILM WITH R BALKI.No.. the title #SHAMITABH does not have a particular meaning .. the reason for the name will be found in the film .. !!”
Amitabh Bachchan earlier took to Twitter to inform about him singing: “Balki and Shamitabh meet….got to sing another song ..aarrrgghh!! I am hopeless at this…But guess will have to do it!!
This will be Bachchan’s third collaboration with director Balki after hits like Cheeni Kum and Paa, which also earned him his third National award.
The film will see Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush in the lead. Reportedly, Dhanush is playing a deaf and dumb character in the film. The film will also mark the debut of Kamal Haasan and Sarika’s younger daughter Akshara.[/tps_footer]
