Soon, Amitabh Bachchan will come back with his popular television game show Kaun Banega Crorepati for the 11th Season. In addition to baritone voice of Amitabh Bachchan, we get to see him in unique style. Over the years, Piku actor is mostly seen in classic suits with printed ties and blazers for the show. Last five year, Priya Patil has been styling him for the show. Priya will be fulfilling the job of stylist in this new season also.
Regarding fashion choices for Amitabh Bachchan, she has said “The fabric we use for Amitabh Bachchan ‘s suits is imported from Italy. The quality has to be super fine, so every season we make sure to avail the best material.” Personal choice of Paa actor has been revealed at the time also. It is said, “He usually prefers a classic look. He likes to keep it simple and elegant. As far as colours go, he mostly goes for darker and deeper tones.” In the new season, Priya wishes to experiment a bit with the tie knot.
Priya has elaborated further and said “Last year I experimented with the three-piece suit, which he had never worn on any season before. I also introduced the bandhgala suit for him last year. This year, he will be seen in three-piece suits but his style of wearing ties will be different as I am planning to introduce the Eldridge or pratt knot.”
Later on, Priya has also added “Before the season starts, we show a style guide to Mr. Bachchan. He goes through it and often gives suggestions and comments. His satisfaction matters, so it is important to get his approval before designing his suits. From fitting to choosing the colours, he is patiently involved in the whole process.”
About difficulty of styling a legend like Amitabh Bachchan, Priya has said “When you have to style such a huge personality, it was obviously a challenge where you couldn’t go wrong. But Mr. Bachchan is a down-to-earth person. He made me feel comfortable when I first met him. I was styling him for over five years now, and then he gave me the opportunity to design for him. I feel it’s not the clothes that make him look presentable on screen. It’s his charismatic personality that makes my designs shine.”
