Amitabh wears a wig !!

I know that echarchans are very smart and may know this , but certainly I didnt know, and was profoundly shocked to hear that Amitabh wears a wig !!

This certainly is one of bollywood's best-kept secrets , and I came to know this only because my father attended a lecture on cosmetic surgery ,where the doctor giving the lecture revealed this fact .

I searched on the net and found this-

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Does_Amita...han_wear_a_wig

If this is true , and most probably it is , then the press certainly co-operates a lot with the top actors . Considering that Amitabh had a bad relationship with the press in the 70s and 80s , when he never gave interviews , the press has certainly forgiven him .

Of course , the press co-operating with stars is nothing new.....for example , the fact that many female stars smoke is carefully hidden by not publishing any photos of them smoking . While male stars themselves give photos of themselves smoking as it is considered macho, photos of female actors smoking are rarely found as it will affect their image among our backward audiences .

Still ,this was a surprise.....

Re: Amitabh wears a wig !!

Here are some Indian personalities famous for their wigs:


Rajinikanth – This balding grandpa and Tamil movie superstar wears a wig when he acts with girls who are young enough to be his great-grand daughters. Like his Sivaji co-star Shriya Saran, for instance.

Raaj Kumar – The late Bollywood actor of Jaani fame was known to wear a wig.

Rajkumar – Kannada film star Rajkumar (1929-2006) used to wear a wig in some of his movies.

Rakesh Roshan – In his forgettable days as an actor, Rakesh Roshan (better known as father of Hrithik Roshan) used to wear a wig to cover up his premature baldness.

Dewang Mehta – The late Executive Director of the Indian software association Nasscom was never seen without his wig. Dewang was a great guy who did a lot to promote the Indian software industry in the early days (Nasscom’s present chief Som Mittal is also bald as a door-knob but he does not wear a wig).

MGR – The late Tamil film actor and politician wore a wig in many of his movies. In public, MGR was never seen without his fur cap in his later years.

Future Wig Wearers?

Salman Khan – Bollywood bad-boy Salman Khan is said to be losing his hair at an alarming rate.

Aamir Khan – Another Bollywood star who seems to be going bald pretty fast is Aamir Khan.

Sathyaraj – Tamil film hero and villain

Karthik (Mouna Ragam) – Tamil movie star

I used to think this was a rumour when this news had started making waves during the first season of Kaun banega Crorepati! So I'd ignored it... rather refused to believe it!

Lo... yeh bhi barabar hain...

Come to think of it... his hair does look the same in all the movies... Same style of partition... Same fall of his locks... Hmm... then again... so many of us hardly ever mess with our hairstyles anyway!

Re: Amitabh wears a wig !!

I always suspected this... His hair looks a little strange.... the worst wig award should have gone to Dewang Mehta... what a horrible wig he had...

Re: Amitabh wears a wig !!

I dont mind if any actor wears a wig. If they feel they have to, then good for them. I just care about how they act and look on the screen.

Re: Amitabh wears a wig !!

My old professor had some connection with Amitabh. He told us once that he does wear a wig. Have you seen pics of Amitabh taken to hospital when he was ill couple of years back. He was always seen in a monkey cap/wollen cap on the way to hospital multiple times. Who needs a wollen cap in Mumbai...
