Shah Rukh Khan may have been boasting about his 8-pack abs for 'Happy New Year', but Amitabh Bachchan may just have pipped him on the popularity chart - with an unbeatable cuddly look.

The last time when we saw someone 'adding weight' to the character was when Anil Kapoor bloated for Satish Kaushik's film Badhaai Ho Badhaai. Circa 2014: Time when the superstars are highly obsessed with their abs and they go all out to flaunt it, here comes Amitabh Bachchan who will be seen with a pot belly for his character in the much awaited film Piku by Shoojit Sircar.

In an era when the 6 pack and 8 pack abs are a rage, Big B seems happy putting on weight (prosthetic belly we assume) for his character.

Produced by MSM Motion Pictures (a division of Sony Entertainment Network), in association with Saraswati Entertainment Creations Limited and Rising Sun Films, Piku also stars Deepika Padukone, Irrfan Khan, Moushumi Chatterjee and Jishu Sengupta in pivotal roles. It is slated for release on April 30th, 2015.
