A lot of fans have been left flabbergasted by the bald and diabolically menacing look of Sanjay Dutt in the upcoming film Agneepath.
However, getting that look was no easy task. Firstly, Dutt refused to go bald because he had other movies on the floor and shaving his head would have created continuity problems for these other projects.
“Since I had a couple of other films lined up for release after Agneepath, I could not have shaved off my hair....I had told Karan I will not shave off hair. But due to the intensity of the heat and the make-up getting melted, I had to do that,” Dutt is quoted as saying by a news agency.
Explaining further the difficulty of keeping the make-up on, Dutt said: “I had put on this prosthetic make-up for my character in the film...it used to melt within an hour due to the heat. The temperature was around 48 degrees. We had called this make-up artist from abroad...I used to go mad in that hot temperature. So I thought I better shave off my hair.”
The movie has Dutt playing the vile Kancha Cheena, who runs underworld rackets and confiscates property illegally and forcibly.
“I am playing the role of Kancha, a baddie which the film industry will see for the first time. The look in Agneepath will show me in a never-seen-before avatar,” Dutt said.
The film is directed by filmmaker Karan Johar's former assistant Karan Malhotra. It stars Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. Priyanka Chopra plays his love interest.
