Sanjay Dutt has gone bald for his movie Agneepath, an extreme decision he had to take. Dutt didn’t initially want to get his head shaved to play the villain in producer Karan Johar’s remake of the yesteryear hit Agneepath. But blame it on the scorching sun that made it almost impossible for Dutt to shoot with prosthetic make-up.
The temperature in the Diu (that’s where the film is being shot), was a soaring 48 degrees celsius and the prosthetic make-up he had on (which took three hours to apply and would take an hour-and-a-half to remove) began melting away.
To avoid continuity hiccups in his other films, Sanjay Dutt had roped in the Hollywood make-up expert Robin Slater to give him the bald look. But the make-up sessions were long and tiresome. So he took the bold decision and went bald.
As for the continuity of his other films, a wig is being designed in the likeness of Dutt’s original hairdo.
Dutt says, “I couldn’t have handled the make-up mess after a point. It was too tiring. Also, it was a strain on my eyes as prosthetic make-up is heavy.”
