Actors love experimenting with their looks in their movies and often go to great lengths to get one that would best suit a particular character. Ranbir Kapoor sported curly locks for Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet while Priyanka Chopra undertook rigorous training to look like an athlete for Mary Kom. They work hard to get an authentic accent that a role demands (Ayushmann Khurrana in Dum Laga Ke Haisha or sweat it out at the gym to get that perfect body (Alia Bhatt in Shaandaar). Then there are times when actors go to extreme lengths to meet character requirements. Here’s a look at actors who took their roles way too seriously:

Ranveer Singh
To play the role of emperor Bajirao in Bajirao Mastani, Ranveer Singh went bald. We also hear the actor didn’t bathe for days for in a particular war sequence, he needed to look battered. Earlier for Lootera, he pricked himself with a needle to look in pain for the film’s climax.

Aamir Khan
In Rajkumar Hirani’s PK, Aamir’s character loves paan and chews it throughout the movie. To perfect it, the actor is said to have eaten more than a thousand paans.
Saif Ali Khan
Omkara was a very important film in Saif Ali Khan’s career and he won a lot of accolades for his portrayal of Langda Tyagi. To look the part, Saif didn’t brush his teeth for days to give them a yellow tinge.
Varun Dhawan
Varun is barely a few films old but very evidently, he is taking his career very seriously. The role of Raghu in Sriram Raghavan’s Badlapur was extremely tough for the actor and to get it right, he even stayed in a chawl for some days.
