Amitabh Bachchan's much-discussed look with tinted and dyed hair in Bbuddah is yet to be finalised, thanks to Prakash Jha's Aarakshan which the megastar is currently shooting in Bhopal.



Not only do the mega star's looks for the two films differ, there's no way he can move from one to the other effortlessly.



Said a source: "In Bbuddah, the Big B needs to look like a defiant rebellious 60-year-old man who thinks he's still 22. After much deliberation the director and the star had jointly decided on a particular cool-dude look."



"All the details of the look, the Big B's special dyed wig and an imported tint for his beard had been taken care of," he said.



But then the unexpected happened. The Big B decided to sport a specific look for Aarakshan.



He trimmed his beard and hair to a size that he thought suited his character, throwing the look for Bbuddah completely out of its intended Amitabhcourse.



Understandably, there is high anxiety on the sets of Bbuddah as the look needs now to be modified according to how the Big B looks for Aarakshan.

Said the source: "In Aarakshan, the Big B plays a college professor. His look has been tailored accordingly."

"But now the look planned for the Big B to play the street-smart dude in Bbuddah is no more applicable because of the size of his beard and hair for Aarkashan," the source said.

"So the makers of Bbuddah now need to work out a new look for the Big B in accordance with how he looks for Aarakshan," he said.

Director Puri Jagannath flew to Bhopal to discuss - and possibly devise - a new look for the Big B. But so far the Bbuddah team is not sure of what the Big B should look like in the light of his unexpectedly modified look in Aarakshan.

Everyone on the Bbuddah team has been given the licence to decide on a look for the Big B.

Co-producer Abhishek Bachchan too is on the drawing-board trying to work out a look that bridges the gap between how he looks in Aarakshan and how he was supposed to look in Bbuddah.

Jagannath confirms: "We are yet to decide on Bachchan's look. It now has to be worked around how he looks for Aarakshan. There's little time to decide the look. We start shooting from March 23 with him. Any suggestions?"
