It has been sometime after the responsibility has been taken over by the son to keep the hair of the czar of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan look stylish and perfect.
Only Big B knows whether he prefers only Aalim these days to take care of his hair style due to he being the son of Haikim Kairanvi, the late B-Town hair dresser who had the liberty to decide which hair style Amitabh should be having in each of his films during his glorious days as the top most leading man in the tinsel town.
Hakim worked with Mr. Bachchan for many years starting from the film 'Resham Aur Shera' and was known to be very close to the film star. He was also the first hair dresser to accompany Big B for his stage programs abroad.
Aalim sure has a family tradition in this craft which needs specialists to take care of.
Succeeding his famous father in the same profession may have helped him to get a foothold, but just a look of his client list which includes Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Saif Ali Khan, Ranbir Kapoor etc. is enough to know Aalim's talent in hair craft and the current status he enjoys in the industry.
Big B it seems is finding the same level of comfort that he shared with Hakim in his son Aalim too.
On the day before leaving his home Pratiksha for the much talked about world tour, Aalim was summoned by Mr. Bachchan in the morning to style his hair.
Memories and nostalgia must also have prompted Amitabh to have Hakim's Son to do his hair job.
After all Hakim is the man who gave birth to the look of Big B in which his hair covered the ears.
Years back this hair style had become a rage among the youngsters when the movie for which the style was first tried out became a super hit.
