Amitabh Bachchan has shared an anecdote for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s book named ‘The Stranger In The Mirror’. He revealed that his signature French beard look was given to him by Rakeysh during their movie Aks. Big B also said that he liked his French beard and has not changed his look since then.
The legendary actor credited the director for his signature beard. On it, Rakeysh said it was more than enough for a newbie director to just design a look for a legendary personality like Amitabh Bachchan on the big screen.
