The denim blue shirt teamed with khakee coloured pants and a rope dangling over the shoulder is arguably Amitabh Bachchan’s most iconic film look till date and the megastar reveals the styling in ‘Deewar’ was a result of a mistake by the tailor.
Reflective of the tumultuous politics of the early 70s, the 1975 film directed by Yash Chopra established the 71-year-old actor as the “angry young man” of Hindi cinema.
“The knotted shirt and rope on shoulder in ‘Deewar’ was an adjustment for an error in stitching… shirt too long so knotted it,” Amitabh Bachchan shared on Twitter.
‘Deewar’ also starred Shashi Kapoor, Nirupa Roy, Parveen Babi and Neetu Singh. The film was a superhit.
