When Big B’s iconic look turned out to be a tailoring error!

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s blue denim shirt teamed with khaki coloured pants and a rope dangling over the shoulder is arguably his most iconic film look till date which is still fresh in the viewers’ minds. And surprising us all, the megastar revealed on Twitter that the styling in ‘Deewar’ was actually a result of a mistake by the tailor back then!

Sharing the behind the scenes moments with his fans, Big B who is currently in London tweeted, “The knotted shirt and rope on shoulder in DEEWAR was an adjustment for an error in stitching… shirt too long so knotted it.”
