If there is one actor who effortlessly slips into any look, it is Amitabh Bachchan. From Shahenshah to Paa, fans have seen Big B in a variety of avatars only to love him in each one of them. But his latest look for a South Indian movie is now making news.

Recently, Big B was in Hyderabad to join the sets of multilingual period drama Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, and ran a look test for the film. The actor later took to social media and tweeted pictures of his look.

In Telugu, Big B praised his co-star Chiranjeevi, expressing his joy on being able to share the screen space with him.

In a blog posted last night, he wrote about his look. He also revealed his displeasure for wearing a beard and wig. “ may be noticed.. the beard and the hair and the head, all in unison to make my working life a running hell , is back .. despite the swear of ‘never wanting to work in a film which required me to be of beard and wig’ (sic),” he wrote.

But he was quick to mention these as professional hazards. “..the trials and tribulations of professional necessity..though I must say this one gives promise of a permanent base in the Himalayas..,” he quipped.

On the Bollywood front, the megastar will be next seen in Thugs of Hindostan and 102 Not Out.
