Kangana Ranaut dares to be ‘Bald’ and Beautiful!

Every actress in Bollywood attempts to look as gorgeous and seductive as possible but it seems Kangana Ranaut is an exceptional. Remember her girl-next-door ordinary looks in QUEEN and her bucked tooth boyish look appearance in TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS. 

Now hold your breath because in her latest upcoming film KATTI BATTI being directed by the brilliant filmmaker Nikhil Advani, Kangana Ranaut has crossed all boundaries of ugliness and has daringly spotted a bald look!! 

In Bollywood many actors have spotted bald look like Aamir Khan in GAJINI, Salman Khan in TERE NAAM, Shahid Kapoor in HAIDER, Rajinikanth in SHIVAJI –THE BOSS, Sanjay Dutt in AGNEEPATH etc. Recently Ranveer Kapoor has shaved his hairs to spot a bald look in his forthcoming film BAJIRAO MASTANI.

However unlike male actors very few actresses have spotted a bald look in films. To be precious just two actresses have dared to look unconventional. One Priyanka Chopra, who did not hesitate to shave her hair for an important scene in MARY KOM and second being Kangana Ranaut in KATTI BATTI,.

Interestingly once a filmmaker had offered Shilpa Shetty a challenging role that required her to shave hairs but she declined the film and the filmmaker had to shelve the film as none of the Bollywood beauties dared to take the risk but there are exception like the two other great actresses of Indian Cinema, Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das!

When international fame filmmaker Deepa Mehta was making the film WATER, exploring the lives of widows at an ashram in Varanasi, she had signed Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das to play the widows for which both the actresses had readily shaved their hairs. 

However due to religious controversy the film was shelved. Later Deepa Mehta did revives the film but with lesser known actresses.

PK director Raju Hirani planning a film with Amitabh Bachchan

There was a time when every film director aspired to direct thespian Dilip Kumar. After the legend if there is any actor who has the same prowess and histrionics at par with the thespian, he is none other but the superstar of millennium Amitabh Bachchan. Hence it is no surprise that every competent director of this generation desires to direct Amitabh Bachchan. One among the many is Rajkumar Hirani!

After a string of four super duper hits in a row viz. MUNNA BHAI MBBS (2003), LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI (2006), 3 IDIOTS (2009) and PK (2014) Raju Hirani has established himself that he is the latest showman of Bollywood after the original showman Raj Kapoor and the next who took the reins from Raj Kapoor being Subhash Ghai.

In a recent press conference where Rajkumar Hirani was promoting his home production WAZIR staring Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Aktar, Raju Hirani spilled the beans that he is writing a script exclusively for Amitabh Bachchan and hopes the actor will oblige his desire to direct him. “I am writing the script and I am confident by December 2015 it will be complete and then I wish to approach Bachchan Sahab,” he quipped. 

Raju Hirani, who has the privilege of directing Amitabh Bachchan when he was working for advertising agency said, “I have a great admiration for Bachchan Sahab and his work. It is my fortune of directing the great actor in two advertisement films but the charm of directing him for a full fletch film is a secret dream that I have been toying since decades.” 

On his experience of directing Amitabh Bachchan he said, “I have always been in awe of his talent and there has always been a fear while directing him though Bachchan Sahab as an actor is director’s delight and a very warm person.” 

“Yet whenever I felt there was some alteration in the film shot I would hesitate to tell. Hence it is difficult to direct him because as a fan I have always been awestruck by his amazing talent,” candidly confessed Raju Hirani. 

The news of Raju Hirani planning a film with Amitabh Bachchan has sent a wave of joy among film buffs because Hirani is known for delivery quality movies and when two talent of equal prowess unite the result is surely going to be dynamite!
