The 71-year-old actor, who will be seen in a rugged look with grey unkempt moustaches and beard, said it has become difficult to hide the get-up of a film from paparazzi.

"That be the pensiveness from 'Shamitabh'... It is getting exceedingly difficult to preserve a look for a film or occasion when we have millions of mobile cameras following us and immortalising us... Thank you," Bachchan posted on his blog.

Bachchan's look in the R Balki's directed film was already out on the social media last month.

The 'Bhoothnath Returns' star said it was tough to maintain the look.

"'Shamitabh' in the day... It's quite an effort to live with that hair all day!!," Bachchan, who is also lending his voice in the film, said.

This will be Bachchan's third collaboration with director Balki after hits like 'Cheeni Kum' and 'Paa', which also earned him his third National award.

The film, which was shot in Goa and Tamil Nadu, also stars Dhanush and Kamal Haasan's younger daughter Akshara.
