The makers are creating a huge brouhaha about how the Kapoor kid has very bravely agreed to shave his head for his next film Haider. Since Vishal is such a Shakespeare admirer, no points for guessing that his next movie is based on the famous poet’s Hamlet. Shahid has been shooting in Kashmir along with the whole cast and crew of Haider, and meanwhile stories about his courage has been doing the rounds of the media world. Sasha’s dad Pankaj Kapoor is very proud of his beta, Bharadwaj is impressed with Shahid’s dedication for the role…blah blah; why is everyone making the dude wear the garland of victory, if you look at the picture you will notice that he’s not even gone completely bald.
There’s no denying that Shahid is looking deliciously handsome in that hot buzz cut. Very few people can pull off the rugged bald look and make it look sexy, and Kapoor is definitely one of them. Sporting a traditional Phiran, Shahid makes his character of a Kahmiri bloke look really convincing. But I see no point in glorifying him. Great actors usually go to any length to get into the skin of their characters. It’s pretty common in the West, and even in B-town many actors have started to give that extra edge to their characters by asking their hairdressers to go snip snip snip on their la-di-da hairdos…
I guess everyone’s going a li’l overboard with their raving and praising, and that’s super ridiculous.
Let’s take a look at actors who didn’t shake in their boots while going bald for a movie role…
Arjun Rampal: Even though RA.One was a huge dud, Arjun went bald for his role in the film. He looked like the sexy sinister villain, all set to destroy and demolish. He said in an interview that if not for SRK’s film, he wouldn’t have let anyone even touch his hair.
Shabana Azmi: Even though she didn’t make it to the final casting of Water, but she went bald for the film without any hesitation. She made it a style statement, and was seen attending various soirees in her bald avatar.
Matt Damon: The actor went bald for his recent film Elysium. He was really worried if his hair will grow completely after he shaves it off. But he went ahead with the decision any which ways.
