On-screen Rajnikanth is as flamboyant as one can get. From pink shirts to green jeans and colourful scarves, caps and sunglasses, Rajnikanth comes in all guises. Some might laugh at his outrageous costumes, but when a Rajnikanth film releases, tailors in Chennai get extra busy stitching similar get-ups for his loyal fans.
Off-screen, Rajnikanth is anything or anyone but a star. The man, for all practical purposes, could be missed. Some say, the simple 'white kurta' get-up of the man is a put on - an attempt at being carefully humble. Well, in India, nothing goes uncontested. The unkempt beard, the balding look, the sleep-deprived eyes - there is nothing in the man who apparently ignites unparalleled frenzy when he blazes the screen.
Amitabh Bachchan is style personified - on-screen and off. There is a certain gravitas one comes to associate with the actor, and he flaunts it. The elegant suits, the crispy ties, the immaculate salt-n-pepper beard, the prim-in-place hair even as Amitabh goes into character in roles that call for clear ruffle, he somehow carries his sartorial imprint (except perhaps in 'Paa', where the make-up masked the man totally).
