Amitabh Bachchan is a master of reinvention. From reinventing himself as an actor to experimenting with TV as a medium, he has done it all. Not that he has been shy of experimenting with his looks either. Remember his Pied Piper-meets-Captain Jack Sparrow look in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom or Meyer Wolfsheim in The Great Gatsby or even The Last Lear where he played a Shakesperean actor.
The latest is that the actor has donned a new look once again. A long-haired Bachchan is seen dressed in white and sporting spectacles. The caption read: There is a 'ninja' in my soup .. naaah ! Just a campaign for a product.
He was shooting an energy drink ad. Social media compared his look with Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter) and Gandalf (The Lord of the Rings).

"The concept of this outlandish clothing was the handiwork of the many stylists that now occupy the space so generously accorded to not just cinema, but the varied other efforts that require a band, a stage and a tentative entertainment platform or stage," he added.
