The superstar and Balki are teaming up again in Shamitabh. If you recall, Balki had given Amitabh Bachchan a cute ponytail in his film Cheeni Kum and made him almost unrecognizable as the progeria-suffering kid in Paa.
Now, for Shamitabh, R. Balki has given the 71-year-old superstar a shaggy, grizzled look that lends an added intensity to the megastar.
Big B has been sharing the look on the social media because he admits it’s difficult and nearly impossible to keep the look secret.
“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…” Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog, http://srbachchan.tumblr.com.
This look has been done by American make-up expert Dominie Till, who previously worked with Amitabh Bachchan in Paa. Big B has already spoken about his arduous sittings with Dominie for the Shamitabh look.
