Another ‘bald’ step for Sanju?
The actor has to shave his head again for Agneepath, Karan Johar wants him to be a part of the item number to be shot soon
Sanjay Dutt’s happiness on finally getting rid of the wigs he had to wear to cover his bald head, seems to be rather short-lived.
The actor who had to shave his head to play the character of Kancha Cheena in Karan Johar’s Agneepath, has to get rid of his hair once again. KJo, who seems particularly fond of the main villain of his film, wants the actor to be a part of the item number to be shot for Agneepath, which might feature Katrina Kaif as well.
A source informed Mumbai Mirror, “A few days ago, KJo called up Sanju. He told him that he has to shave his head again for the item number for Agneepath. Sanju was taken aback since he had been gearing up for his home production Satte Pe Satta.
He told KJo that he has already allotted dates to Son Of Sardar and Satte Pe Satta. Both films are scheduled to go on floors soon. But KJo was adamant. Finally, Sanju had to give in.”
“While this surely shows Sanju’s commitment to work, it also goes to show how close the actor is to KJo these days,” added the source. Reportedly, Dutt had hosted a special party for KJo and Shah Rukh Khan to celebrate his wife Maanyata’s birthday in July 2011. About a month later, Shah Rukh invited Dutt to his Eid party. KJo, Shah Rukh and Dutt have become rather close since then.
Dutt’s character, Kancha Cheena in Agneepath, sports a bald look in the film. But since he had other films on the floors, to avoid continuity problems, Hollywood makeup artist Robin Slater was flown down to create the ‘bald’ look without actually shaving his head.
After the first couple of days, Dutt was experiencing problems with the makeup. With the temperatures at the shoot location, Diu, going up by a few degrees, the makeup started melting and dripping down Dutt’s face. This instigated Dutt to shave off his head.
This bald look was maintained for the entire film. Meanwhile, famous wigmaker Victoria Wood had flown down to Diu to make a wig for the actor’s other films.
While many may think that the actor can sport a tonsure for the item number, the filmmakers think otherwise. “The tonsure look wouldn’t match the one he has in Agneepath. Sanju will have to shave his head again for the song,” revealed a source.
Thanks to Victoria Woods wigs, Dutt will not even have to delay his forthcoming films, claimed the source. “Neither Son of Sardar nor his ambitious home production Satte Pe Satta would get postponed. In fact, by now, he has quite a few wigs which would take care of his look in the films” added the source. Dutt and KJo remained unavailable for comment.
