However, soon Mr Bachchan clarified that the look is not from Thugs Of Hindostan and it is for an advertisement he shot the other day.
Here's Mr Bachchan's statement.
NO sir .. this is from an Ad., I worked in today .. !! NOT thugs .. hehehe https://t.co/JTeoiTH309? Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) April 13, 2017
Few months ago, Aamir Khan's bearded look was also believed to be for Thugs Of Hindostan. But the actor was perhaps shooting for an advertisement.
Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan have collaborated for the first time for Vijay Krishna Acharya's Thugs Of Hindostan. The film is slated for a Diwali release. Aamir has earlier worked with Mr Acharya in Dhoom 3.
Meanwhile, Mr Bachchan is currently awaiting the release of his next film Sarkar 3. The Ram Gopal Varma-directed film also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Amit Sadh and Yami Gautam. Sarkar 3 hits the screens on May 12.
Amitabh Bachchan, who last starred in Pink, recently won the National Film Award for Best Film on Other Social Issues.
