Amitabh Bachchan’s characters and the style they carry have always been inspirational and quite the trend setters! From Jai of “Sholay” to Auro of “Paa”, people have loved and admired his characters and followed his style so of course, his character in his latest venture “Aarakshan” is no different.
Any director who has worked with Big B knows how particular the legendary star is, he works to implement the details of the character he plays just right from the costumes to the mannerism. In “Aarakshan” Mr. Bachchan plays Dr. Prabhakar Anand a character whose look isn’t exactly new, it is inspired by the director himself!
The character is designed while keeping in mind Prakash Jha’s look in real life, the way he keeps his hair, to the thick rimmed frames, the solid kurta colors, the khaadi jacket and the checked muffler to complete the entire look!
Priyanka Mundada, the costume designer of the film, said, “It was an interesting sitting I had with Prakash ji and Mr. Bachchan when we were discussing the look of his character in the film, when looking at Mr. Jha, he points out and says ‘that’s it, that is Prabhakar,’ both Prakash ji and I were quite taken a back.”
Keep watching for the release of “Aarakshan” August 12th!
