Amitabh Positivity Post: Pick Your Favorite of his Iconic Looks!

Clothes! Always a happy thing. I am feeling hot and stressed, because it is hot and I have to pack up and go back home tomorrow, so I will nicely relax with clothing.

Amitabh! He wasn’t much of a clothes horse, but there were definitely certain looks that took the eye. For instance, his superhero look for Shahenshah:

And of course, the classic 1970s police uniform from Zanjeer/everything.

My favorite look:

Obviously Shahenshah. Wig, whip, leather, and metal sleeve? It’s the best.

Look I would borrow:

1970s Indian police uniform. No one looks bad in it.

Most iconic look:

Gotta go Deewar.

How about you?

    • Oh, Coolie is a good one! now I feel bad for forgetting it.

      You could borrow his Agneepath white suit? 90s, so no bellbottoms!

  1. Seventies police uniform! which actually looks like a modern police uniform except it’s fashionable these days to fill it out a bit more, I think. I also really liked his Sarkar look, but MUST the poster foreground his bare foot? It is just me?


    • I’m thinking the foot must be on purpose, a symbol of how he stands over the city or something.

      I feel like the 70s police uniforms were even tighter in the below the waist area than the modern ones (if that is possible). Also, thinner fabric. But otherwise, identical, you are right!

  2. He was a huge clothes horse in the 70s. His parade of idiotic fashion goes ON and ON. My favourite look of his is actually a satin jacket and zebra print shirt in The Great Gambler. The one I would borrow is the Don jacket and green shirt, which in fact I HAVE borrowed as I bought a lookalike vintage jacket. I’m still waiting for a party to dress up as Don to.

    Most iconic, tie up Deewar shirt. A great look, a sexy look.
