Amitabh Bachchan turned 81 today
Amitabh Bachchan turned 81 on October 11, 2023. While the actor's surprise appearance outside his Mumbai residence, Jalsa, left fans ecstatic, some also noticed his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and granddaughters Aaradhya and Navya in the background.
Amitabh Bachchan's evolving hairstyle over the years is indeed a reflection of his changing roles and persona in the Indian film industry.
In Late 1960s,in his debut film, Amitabh Bachchan had a messy look with hair that was disheveled and featured a fringe on the side and back. This look suited his character as a young, idealist poet in the film.
In "Anand," (1971) one of his early breakout roles, Bachchan's hairstyle began to evolve. He sported silky, straight, sideswept hair with a side parting, which marked the beginning of the hairstyle that would become his trademark in later films.
The Iconic Bachchan Cut (Mid-1970s to 1980s) became synonymous with his "angry, young man" persona and stayed in place for over a decade. It featured thick wavy locks in a tight coiffure with a middle parting and sideburns that covered the ears. This iconic hairstyle was seen in many of his hit films from the mid-1970s, including "Deewar," "Don," and "Sholay."
After a career slump in the 1990s, Amitabh Bachchan reinvented his hairstyle along with his persona when he hosted the TV show "Kaun Banega Crorepati" in 2000. He adopted a slick, middle-aged avatar with straight, jet-black hair and a white goatee. This new look represented a departure from his earlier "angry young man" image.
In his 80s, Amitabh Bachchan now sports a salt-and-pepper hairdo that is shorter and sparser than his earlier hairstyles. This look is more in line with his age, and he complements it with dark, horn-rimmed glasses and colorful beanies. It's a reflection of how gracefully he has aged and evolved his style over the years.
Amitabh Bachchan's ever-evolving hairstyles have mirrored his versatility as an actor and his ability to adapt to different roles and eras in the Indian film industry. He has certainly remained a style icon for generations and continues to be a celebrated figure in Indian cinema.
