Shahenshah to Piku: Padma Vibhushan Amitabh Bachchans most epic style transformations

It has been three decades since his angry young man avatar but Amitabh Bachchan is still the charismatic star he used to be and can pull off any onscreen look with elan. The actor, who was awarded Padma Vibhushan today will next be seen in Piku as a cranky old man and might we add that if the trailer is any indication, with heavy framed glasses and a brace around his neck, he completely looks the part.

The-Great-Gatsby

Amitabh Bachchan also made his mark in his blink-and-you-will-miss Hollywood appearance in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby. The actor played the role of Meyer Wolfsheim and shared the screen with Leonardo DiCaprio. Bachchan looked dapper in tailored suits , bright ties and panama hats. Courtesy: ibn live

 

Paa

Amitabh Bachchan went through one of the most challenging style transformations in Paa. In the film the actor played the role of a kid suffering from Progeria. During the entire length of the film his face was covered in prosthetic mask so that he looks like he is suffering from the rare genetic disorder. Courtesy: A screengrab from Paa's trailer.

 

Chini-Kum

With a stylish ponytail and silver beard Amitabh Bachchan not only played a character close to his own age (64-year-old in 2007) but also the romantic lead in Cheeni Kum. The actor who played the role of a chef looked suave in turtle neck sweaters paired with deep coloured coats as he romanced Tabu's character onscreen. A poster of Cheeni Kum

 

Boom

Boom was a disaster at the box office but Amitabh Bachchan was quite the silver fox and stole limelight from debutante Katrina Kaif (who played the role of a model) even in the style department. Courtesy: A screengrab from the trailer of the film. 

 

Sooryavansham

Amitabh Bachchan had a double role in Sooryavansham and while the younger role resembled the actor's off screen avatar, his older version was completely different. The actor wore dhoti and kurta and sported a salt-and-pepper stubble with handlebar moushtache in the film. A poster of the film.

 

Khuda-Gawah

Amitabh Bachchan is perhaps one of those few actors who played the role of an Afghan warrior onscreen. The actor wore Khet partug and teamed it up with Perahan tunban and also sported a stubble in his film Khuda Gawah. Courtesy: Screengrab from the trailer of the film.

 

Agneepath

Even though all whites was the trademark of Jitendra and Mithun chakraborty, we must say Bachchan did a great work at pulling it off in Agneepath. The actor also wore colours but mostly throughout this film, he was seen in white attires. Courtesy: A screengrab from the trailer of the film.

 

Shahenshah

One of Amitabh Bachchan's earliest radical style transformation was seen in Shahenshah. The actor gave up his clean shaven look and swapped it with silver hair and grey stubble. He wore a padded leather jacket with armour-like silver patterns on one arm and teamed it up with black leather gloves. Courtesy: Youtube trailer of the film.
