Few movie stars can claim to be better dressed off screen than on screen. Abhishek Bachchan, who turns 37 today, happens to be one of them. He got his style lessons from Big B himself, but over the years Abhishek has created a distinct personal style that is at once trendy but not overpowering. In 2012, he even made it to the top 50 in the GQ Best Dressed list. Here’s a look at his signature style:
A white shirt and jeans are classic style staples for every man and Abhishek attends numerous functions in them.
