Sanjay Dutt who was initially using prosthetics for looking bald in Agneepath has decided to shave off his head, as the searing heat of Diu started melting his make-up.

The actor began shooting in Diu with a prosthetic make-up but the extreme temperature (48 degree celsius) started melting his make-up and it was impossible for him to shoot.

Dutt who's supposed to sport a bald look in the film then decided to shave off his head to avoid the hiccups.

Sanju"The first two days of shooting — at a factory in Mumbai went smoothly. Trouble began when they started shooting in Diu. It started looking scary," a unit hand told a daily, noting, "the make-up started melting and dripping down Sanju's face.

"Adding to his trouble was the fact that prosthetic make-up takes three hours to apply and another hour-and-a-half to remove. So the actor had to wake up at 5am to get ready for a 9.30am shift. It was then that the actor decided to get rid of his hair and use wigs for the other movies he was shooting for.

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."
