'Big B'

     This is a quick fire portrait of Mr Amitabh Bachchan, who is popularly known as 'Big B' in India. He is an actor who has been firing the imaginations of Indians for the past 50 years. In his hey days he was also known as 'The angry young man' for the kind of roles he did. His popularity has still not faded even a wee bit. I, for one, am a big fan of his. Would like him to continue forever.
     Wanted to do a portrait for a change. What better subject than this ! And believe you me, this was pure fun... all the way. 


  1. Awesome portrait, you should do much more !

  2. Je suis tout à fait d'accord avec Jeanne, vous devriez peindre davantage de portraits...
    Il y a une grande puissance dans celui-ci et j'aime particulièrement son expression.

    Gros bisous

    Merci pour votre gentil commentaire...

  3. Brilliant! The likeness, the expression, the mood. One of your very best, Asit.

  4. Wow, this is a fantastic portrait! Such a presence! No wonder you had fun. I will join Jane and Martinealison - you should do more portraits!

  5. I had to 'google' this man, but you've got a great likeness - well done. He looks amazing in real life for someone who is 69 years of age.
