Shoojit Sircar’s quirky dramedy ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ has already got the country buzzing with its charmingly funny trailer and hilarious battle of wits between legendary thespian Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana, set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on 12 June. With anticipatory comments ranging from the unique story to the onscreen face-off, one aspect that stood out has been Amitabh Bachchan’s extraordinary look and demeanor in the film. With a long beard, old school spectacles, a head scarf and a prosthetically-pronounced nose, Bachchan looks absolutely unrecognizable, and his signature baritone too has been replaced with a Lucknowi twang to it.

Shoojit Sircar and his creative team stunningly transformed the Shahenshah into a cantankerous old man for the film: combining strenuous hours of prosthetics, make-up and long hours of shoot in the scorching sun – not easy for any actor. But we all know what the Bachchan legacy stands for.
