Amitabh Bachchan has been in the public eye for nearly 50 years - and yet, year after year, he never fails to surprise us. Sometimes, it's with the choice of roles and movies he throws our way, sometimes the inspirational things he says and does, and other times, it's simply with his choice of clothing. Yes, Amitabh Bachchan may be older than your average hero, but his sense of style is younger and more experimental than most men in Bollywood (barring Ranveer Singh!). His fashion sense, just like his choice of the roles, is bold, versatile and just keeps getting better, even as the years stack up.
Here are some of our favourite Amitabh Bachchan looks. If there's one fashion icon every man needs to have, we think it's him.
The world might catch jump on to the UV bandwagon soon enough, what with it being the Pantone colour of 2018. But why wait for the world, when you can blaze your own path through? Here, he looks sharp and dapper in a startling UV suit. Can you really say, looking at this picture, that this is a 75 year old man? Fashion and fitness, these are definitely two things we can take inspiration from him for. The next time your men friends shy away from experimenting with colours, this is the photo you want to point to.
By now, we all know that Ranveer Singh is almost synonymous with bold, kitschy prints on his suits, but Amitabh Bachchan managed to upstage even the King Of Bold with his UV number.
Not to say Ranveer hasn't tried a pantone suit on himself. How could the experimental Singh possibly be left behind by anyone. At least we can now say that Amitabh Bachchan is as fashionable as Ranveer Singh (if not just a tiny bit more).
The other person to have taken to UV, dripping with confidence and class is Ryan Reynolds. Who would've thought: Bachchan, Singh and Reynold the trifecta we need to follow for a sigh-worthy dose of men's fashion. We have to admit, it definitely helps that all three are so pleasing on the eyes.
Amitabh Bachchan's UV suit has our heart, but that's not to say that he hasn't experimented before this. When it comes to trying on different colours, Amitabh Bachchan is no noob. His red suit is proof that he's not afraid to step it up in the fashion department.
It not just colours, he isn't afraid to bring out his prints either. We have to say, going through Amitabh Bachchan's feed is leaving us more impressed by the minute. This man is the fashion icon men everywhere should be looking at for inspiration.
Abhishek Bachchan seems to be following in his father's footsteps too when it comes to fashion. Although, we have to concede, not with quite as much success. Only goes to show: style is not just what you wear, it's also who you are. The father-son duo seem to be quite the team, though, and are often seen in matching or similar outfits.
Who else but Amitabh Bachchan could have pulled off this kurta and Nehru jacket set with the floral pattern. We honestly can't think of one person. The full force of Mr. Bachchan's star power was evident as he walked the ramp in this Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla ensemble with matching shoes.
Even for Laxmi puja at home, Amitabh Bachchan can't help but stay stylish. It seems it might run in the family, all thanks to him. That printed pink kurta is not one everyone could carry off.
Kudos to you Mr. Bachchan. You're really keeping the Ranveer Singhs of the world on their best fashion toes.
