Aamir Khan has always been one to experiment. He sported long locks in Mangal Pandey: The Rising and his super cute spikes in Dil Chahta Hai got his fans swooning over him. But it was his Ghajini hairdo that truly had people copying him. To get into the role of a killer, Aamir went all out—got ripped and sported the semi-bald buzz cut. And boy, did it turn out to be one of the most iconic men’s hairstyles ever!
Salman Khan—Tere Naam
We’ve all cringed when Salman sported his long greasy locks in Tere Naam. But believe it or not, from autowallas to college youngsters, everybody wanted to play copycats to their favourite star by flaunting this hairdo. So what if it looked like he just got a champi?
Ranveer Singh—Bajirao Mastani
Ranveer Singh is that guy who gives his roles his all and it’s always more than evident on screen. So when he was asked to go bald to get into the role of the Peshwa for Bhansali’s acclaimed film, Bajirao Mastani he didn’t make any noise about it. And we’ve got to say, RV sure did complete justice to his character in the film.
Saif Ali Khan—Race
Saif is one of the most charming stars around. So when he sported brushed back hair in Race, girls couldn’t stop going gaga over him. Suits, sunglasses and his perfect hairstyle—Saif looked dapper as ever while playing Ranvir, the ruthless businessman in the movie.
Hrithik Roshan is one of the most powerhouse performers in Bollywood. Naturally then, when he played the superhero, Krrish while sorting long locks, in the Rakesh Roshan directed film, his fan following only increased. While his stunts in the film sure had everyone surprised, his hairstyle won him fans galore.
If we have a favourite actor in Ranbir Kapoor, it is because of his performance in Rockstar. The film may have taken a beating at the box-office but it sure did a lot of RK Jr.’s career. While in the first half Kapoor sported a short crop while playing the innocent guy in college, towards the second half of the film—he flaunted long messy hair while playing a lovelorn rockstar and we’ve got to say, the look worked wonders for his character in the movie.
Sasha has always been about meaty roles and laudable performances. So when he signed Haider, Vishal Bhardwaj’s adaptation of Hamlet, it meant yet another feather in his cap. In this role, Sasha sported cropped hair and trimmed beard—a look that went seamlessly with his role as the revengeful Haider Meer in the movie.
Shah Rukh Khan—Happy New Year
A while before Happy New Year released, SRK was seen sporting white streaks in his hair and soon enough, it was learnt that this was his look in the Farah Khan directed film. While few actors have mustered the courage to change their hair colour for a film, SRK is one of those rare stars who go that extra mile to look the part in a film.
