Shah Rukh Khan, the iconic Bollywood superstar, has once again made headlines, not just for his acting prowess, but for his bold and unconventional choice in his recent film, ‘Jawan.’ While his bald look in the movie garnered widespread attention and applause, it has now been revealed that going bald was not originally scripted but a deliberate choice made by the actor himself.
In a recent interview, Shah Rukh Khan playfully shared the backstory behind his striking bald appearance in ‘Jawan.’ He revealed, “It was never part of the script. It was a part of the get-up that was a part of the script. I just chose the bald look out of laziness. I said, ‘Yeah, then I don’t have to wear 2 hours of this makeup. Can I just go bald?’ So I think it came out of that.”
This unexpected decision to go bald showcases the actor’s willingness to break away from the conventional and embrace a look that was not originally planned. It’s a testament to his dedication to his craft and his desire to make the character his own.
Interestingly, King Khan confessed that he had reservations about his bald look initially, even consulting friends who had mixed reactions. He humorously shared, “I had reservations because I showed the promo to some friends, and they were like, ‘Arey yaar! It looks very scary, girls won’t like you.’ So I hope girls like me. I hope girls like bald men. I like bald girls.”
‘Jawan,’ directed by renowned Tamil filmmaker Atlee, has been making waves since its global release on September 7 in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The film, an action-packed thriller, boasts an ensemble cast that includes Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, and Deepika Padukone in a special appearance.
Beyond its thrilling action sequences, ‘Jawan’ delves into various social and political issues through its central father-son storyline, portrayed by none other than Shah Rukh Khan himself. With a star-studded cast that includes Sanya Malhotra, Priyamani, and Sanjay Dutt in a cameo role, ‘Jawan’ promises to be a cinematic experience that goes beyond the surface, much like Shah Rukh Khan’s bold bald look – a choice that has undoubtedly left a mark on the film’s reception.
