All those trichologists who take out fancy advertisements in the newspapers, magazines, and other forms of media platforms inducing those who are suffering from hair losses to try out their medications, would die a death when Karan Johar's AGNEEPATH releases. It is because of the fact that Sanjay Dutt is playing the role of a Bald Kancha Cheena, a character that was played with finesse by Danny in earlier version of AGNEEPATH. Suddenly bald is in as a fashion statement it seems, more so through the world of Hindi cinema that defines the sartorial trend, a trend that evolved with Big B's famous side burns and is morphing into a statement by shedding the whole bunch load.
Incidentally, while mainstream Hindi film actors have taken a long time to warm up to it, Hollywood actors did not have any qualms to shave off the hair if the character demanded. It was Yule Brynner, the famous Hollywood actor who had made bald pate a fashion statement.
With Sanjay Dutt setting the trend, and Arjun Rampal also shedding his famous manes in RA.ONE, it indeed is a time to run through such characters in the Hindi film industry who have created a style statement through their hair style or rather by shedding the hair to create the style.
