Mumbai, Aug 2 (IANS) B-town's young brigade of actors like Ranveer Singh and Yami Gautam see megastar Amitabh Bachchan as the most stylish actor in the industry. For them, he is the style icon.
"By far Mr. Bachchan is the most stylish actor. For so many years he has been a style icon. He is the best-dressed man ever and best style icon," Ranveer told reporters Thursday at the Vogue Beauty Awards event.
Apart from Ranveer and Yami, a host of other Bollywood celebrities like Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Kunal Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Diana Penty, Aditi Rao Hydari, and Sophie Choudry attended the event.
Dia, his co-star in films like "Shootout at Lokhandwala" and "Kyun! Ho Gaya Na...", too tags Big B as "most stylish".
"He really carries himself in a very cool way. At his age to do what he does and the way he pulls it off are very cool," she said.
The 70-year-old actor has not only been ruling the film industry since his first hit "Zanjeer" in 1973, but he has also become an inspiration for younger generation.
If he has wowed with his performances on the screen, the "Paa" actor's subtle sense of style makes him very special. His bandgalas, scarves, long and short coats, blazers and shoes are stylish without being loud.
In February this year, Big B was voted the most stylish icon in a poll.
Kunal too finds Amitabh classy, and said: "There is nobody more stylish than him. He is 70 and still he is always very well turned out. He can carry off anything. He is extremely stylish."
