Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has frequently been sporting a thick bearded look in his recent films, so much so that he says has forgotten what it feels like to feel a normal face.
Big B was recently seen sporting a beard in “Thugs Of Hindostan”, and will again repeat the look in the upcoming films, “Chehre” and “Gulabo Sitabo”.
“The beard brigade has, I notice, been around for three films now in immediate repetition to the face…’Thugs Of Hindostan’, ‘Chehre’ and now ‘Gulabo Sitabo’. I have almost forgotten what it feels like to feel a normal face.” Amitabh wrote on his blog.
The 76-year-old thespian says he fears pulling the hair of his fake beard.
“There is a subconscious holding back when touching the face for fear or pulling the hair of fake beard or nose or whatever prosthetics there are and destroying them. Normalcy has been put away and the feel for the original absconds,” he said, adding: “Unfortunately all the films to come are also in the similar category. Change the face, put on prosthetics, put hair… It’s like its a must and a given now.”
But Amitabh says he needs to feel normal now.
“Well, I have news for these makers. No more. I need to feel normal!”
The iconic actor is currently shooting for his upcoming release, “Gulabo Sitabo”, along with Ayushmann Khurrana.
Gulabo Sitabo — a legendary pair of puppet sisters — have been part of Uttar Pradesh folklore. The film, a comedy, apparently, is a take-off on these two characters.
