Rumours, speculations and more – Shahid’s new look finally revealed and drowned down the noise only to give way for more. Vishal Bhardwaj’s next ‘Haider’ starring Shahid kapoor and his near-bald look created a buzz in the news and among fans. Starring Tabu, Irrfan Khan, Shradhha kapoor and Kay Kay Menon, this film is being shot in the beautiful snowy valleys of Kashmir.
Vishal, known for his love for Shakespeare (Well, his work to be precise, literal sense is just too creepy), his adaptations of Macbeth and Othello namely Maqbool and Omkara have not only given him box office hits but also critical acclaim to his work of art. Vishal also gave Shahid – the super hit movie “Kaminey”, no wonder the ‘I can go bald, I have so much faith in you’ faith for Vishal.
Well, artists are conscious about their hair, and sporting a near-bald look is no joke so – well done Shahid. Although, not everyone is excited about his new look, on one hand where father Pankaj kapoor and family have been supportive, Shahid’s fans created the trending Hashtag #DontGoBaldShahid right after he posted his first look on twitter.
Shahid Kapoor’s recent encounter on Koffee with Karan Season 4 revealed to the world how dear and precious his crowning glory (hair) is to him. Even more, the actor uncovered that he was aware that he’d have to shave of his hair before signing the film. Director Vishal Bhardwaj had stated earlier that he is not only proud but also glad seeing Shahid’s dedication to the role and how he tries to get into the skin of the character, and on the other hand Shahid says that his father was his inspiration behind this decision. Actor Pankaj kapoor has sported the shaved head look in 2 Films and is rather excited about Shahid’s new look. Well, we certainly hope the ‘R Rajkumar’ star finds his way to another success and more.
