Players, which also stars Bipasha Basu and Sonam Kapoor, is a remake of British film The Italian Job.
"Abhishek will never admit to it, but he has a stylish streak in him," a source told DNA India. "His style sense was much appreciated by all his co-stars in Players including Sonam and Bipasha, who are known to be quite trendy themselves.
"In January, this year, he was called to meet the brand's renowned shoe designers who created a customised pair in line with Abhishek's distinct tastes and requests. What makes it special is that Abhishek is the first Indian male actor to be honoured by this."
The insider added that Bachchan is also a secret fitness fanatic.
"He's been an athlete right from his school days, so him being passionate about working out is nothing new," the source said. "He may not be sporting six packs, but he is super-fit. He'd only put on weight in between for his roles."
In October, the Dhoom 3M star gave dieting tips to fans over Twitter.
He warned them that it is important to eat sensibly rather than going on crash diets.
