On 14th April 2017, Amitabh Bachchan took to his Twitter and shared a photo of him donning a Sikh look with a heavy beard and an orange turban. He captioned, “My Nani, Amar Kaur Sodhi .. and my Nana Khazan Singh Suri .. must be smiling from the heavens to see me thus .. in my Sikh roots !!“. Some people started assuming that it is Amitabh’s look in the movie ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ but he clarified that the look is for an advertisement.
