|Anything for a role! Shahid Kapoor has decided to shave his head for his next film, Haider. Shahid’s role in the movie demands such a look. Now, the question is: will it be an easy makeover for the actor who loves running his fingers through his mane?
If Shahid grew his hair for Vishal Bharadwaj’s Kaminey, he is willing to let go of them for his Haider. No prizes for guessing, the actor was apprehensive about this drastic makeover. It’s heard that Shahid and Vishal have been debating over the bald look in Haider, and now we know that the director has got the better of the actor.
Shahid Kapoor has confirmed the news. “I knew it five months ago when Vishal started discussing Haider with me. All my hair is going. But it's fine…,” the actor is quoted as saying by a daily. The actor even said that the role is so good that he doesn’t mind getting rid of his hair.
Shahid Kapoor has already started shooting for Haider in Kashmir. He has got three-four looks in the film and will first shoot for those scenes which require him to sport hair, and will later go for a bald look for the rest of the shoot.
