Ajay’s Look in “Once Upon A Time In Mumbai” Inspired by Amitabh’s Look

After giving 70’s look to Kangana Ranaut, the director Milan Luthria is giving new look to Ajay Devgan in Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. The actor’s new look will be inspired from Amitabh Bachchan’s look in Deewaar.

Like Amitabh Bachchan’s angry young man in Deewaar, Ajay is also playing a character inspired from the 1970s don Haji Mastan in Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. A source said,

“Ajay’s look has been inspired from Amitabh’s look in Deewaar. Almost 37 costumes and looks were rejected before the filmmakers finalised the Deewaar look for Ajay.”

Director Milan Luthria said,

“Yes, we scrapped many of Ajay’s earlier costumes. We had initially decided to dress him like Amitji in Trishul so all the costumes were either polo necks or blazers and jackets.

But I happened to see Deewaar again, I loved Amitji’s all-white look when he goes for his father’s funeral in the film.

I realised that the look would work for Ajay as he looks good in white. Ajay wears white throughout the film. It gives him a different identity.”
