Being an actor is not an easy job and we all know that. From the way they act on-screen and off-screen to the way look, everything is in the public eye. Every little detail is scrutinized. This makes most actors very conscious about the way they look and perform. One of the most important parts of an actor's appearance and their vanity is the hair. Actors spend a lot of their time and money in maintaining their envious mane. But what if a film script demands an actor to go bald? Many dedicated actors, most of whom are the biggest superstars in India, have not hesitated to go bald for a movie. Was it worth it or not, we will let you decide. Take a look at some of the south Indian film actors who chopped off their hair for their movies:
