Abhishek Bachchan has admitted that he is a hard nut to crack when it comes changing his looks or hairstyles for movies. “I come from the old school of thinking that believes an actor must sport a definite look, so it is very difficult for me to experiment with my looks. I had tears in my eyes when I saw locks of cut hair on the floor while styling for Dhoom,” says the actor who has received compliments for his suave look in Game, styled by Shefali Shetty, who heads the styling section of the recently opened salon b:blunt by Adhuna Akhtar and her brother Osh.

Reminiscing old days and laughing off funny memories together with Abhishek at the salon, Adhuna recalls, “I remember how hard Abhishek tried to avoid getting styled. But I’m so happy that all his looks have been superb!”

Countering her playfully, Abhishek reveals how Shefali and Aishwarya ganged up against him to be more open to change, “When Shifu and Ash met each other, they instantly hit it off and in no time started bullying me to experiment. Now, I don’t mind even getting bald to fit into the character.”

AbhishekThe actor adds, "Till a few years ago, I wouldn’t let anyone touch my hair besides my barber who has been cutting my hair since I was a kid. Before Shefali, Osh was the first person to have convinced me to let him handle my hair." The actor adds that it took him a lot of time to understand that the audience likes to see their favourite actors in different avatar in every film, "I discuss my look at length with the stylist before venturing out to experiment. We have long chats to decide what will suit me and the character." With styling acquiring a quintessential part in the aesthetics of any film, Shefali adds, "It is quite a pressurising job to be responsible for the look of a particular actor in a movie. A lot rides on your shoulder, but I try to get into the comfort zones of the actors so that they can let go of their apprehensions."
