Big B recently took to Twitter to unveil his look in his upcoming movie,  R Balki's Shamitabh. The actor can be seen in an intense look sporting a beard amidst Hollywood movie posters and a picture of Woody Allen.

Senior Bachchan tweeted the pic saying, " Shamitabh’ in the day .. its quite an effort to live with that hair all day !!”

From the grungy look with scruffy beard to dark kohl eyes, Amitabh Bachchan's expressions in the pic sure remind us of his 'angry young' days. The actor has been teasing the look of the film on social media sites of late.  He earlier posted this pic on Facebook, from the sets of the movie.
The 71 year old actor, however,  has admitted that it has become increasingly difficult to preserve the look of the film, posting on his blog, "............It is getting exceedingly difficult to preserve a look for a film or occasion when we have millions of mobile cameras following us and immortalising us... Thank you."

The film, which is Amitabh's third time collaboration with R Balki, will see him and Dhanush in the lead. Reportedly, Dhanush is playing a deaf and dumb character in the film. The film will also mark the debut of Kamal Haasan and Sarika's younger daughter Akshara.
