The colour is yet to be decided. According to insiders from the frantically-experimental unit, the Big B would either sport a red-tinted beard and hair. Or it could be various flamboyant colours.
When contacted the director Puri Jagannath said, "That's right. Bachchan sir is going totally psychedelic for his part in Budha. 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 budha (old man), he is livid. He will be dying his beard and wig."
Even the clothes line for the Big B in Budha would be in keeping with his character of a man of 25. Apparently, the Big B would be borrowing accessories from his son Abhishek's wardrobe.
After retaining the same appearance for the last 11 years, the Amitabh Bachchan has suddenly turned experimental about his looks. After happily deciding to sport a freshly-trimmed beard and new hairstyle, a la Prakash Jha for Aarakshan the Big B is going even a step further. In his next film Budha being directed by the Telugu maverick director Puri Jagannath which starts shooting next month; the Big B will dye his beard and hair into a flamboyant trendy colour!
