Amitabh Bachchan in The Great Gatsby: Classy and old-school style!

The superstar, who plays the role of Meyer Wolfsheim in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, is seen in a very upper-class wardrobe in the film, even though he plays a gangster

Amitabh Bachchan didn’t charge a single penny for the work he did in The Great Gatsby, we are told. He plays a cameo in the film – that of Jewish gangland boss Meyer Wolfsheim – and even though he appears for just a short duration, his style doesn’t go unnoticed. He is not looking his usual self – and that’s the speciality of the statement. The imperious wave of white in his hair, the handlebar moustache and the well-trimmed beard…it all lends Big B’s look a very aristocratic attitude.

The pocket square is in place, the clever play of contrast between the colour of the suit and the shade of the tie has been taken care of. Amitabh is also seen wearing a sophisticated hat in a couple of sequences. We are told that Meyer Wolfsheim was a Jew who acted as mentor to Gatsby, with reports suggesting that he was Gatsby’s friend and business associate who was involved in organised crime and had strong connections to the seedy corners of the underworld.

Now that would require the star to have a sinister touch to his style. And honestly, his snowy white beard and moustache with shades of grey imbues his personality with that Don Corleone-like villainous streak. And adding to that a flavor of retro style are the salt and pepper sideburns.
