Akshaye Khanna"Acche dikhoge toh zyada bikoge." That’s cricketer Virender Sehwag’s logic for getting a hair transplant, which cost him Rs 165 per strand for the 4,500 hair follicles transplanted on his head. We asked some commoners to suggest which celebrities should get a hair transplant and figured out how much money would they have to shell out for it:

Akshaye Khanna, 34 (Bollywood actor)
Balding pattern:
Receding hairline above the temples.
Approximate cost for the transplant: Rs 7.5 lakh. “He desperately needs a hair transplant, but only on his head. His chest has enough hair already. A better hairstyle may help his fading career,” says Udit Sharma, 23, a businessman.

Amar Singh, 54 (Politician-turned-actor)
Balding pattern:
Half bald.
Approximate cost for the transplant: Rs 15 lakh “Since he recently confessed to having plans in Bollywood, a hairstyle like Salman Khan’s in Tere Naam may boost his prospects as an actor,” says Nikhil Gupta, a student.

Raghu RamOmar Abdullah, 39 (Politician)

Balding Pattern: Receding hairline above the temples.

Approximate cost for the transplant: Rs 5 lakh "He’s one of the hottest-looking young politicians we have on the circuit. He would look delectable with more hair on his head," says Aditi Vij, 24, an insurance company employee.

Raghu Ram, 34 (TV host and show producer)
Balding Pattern: Completely bald.
Approximate cost for the transplant: Rs 33 lakh.
“It’s a great idea, and might be a good way of telling him from his identical twin Rajiv Lakshman,” says Swecha Verma, a student of Arts.

Rakesh Roshan, 60 (Bollywood producer)
Balding Pattern:
Completely bald.
Approximate cost for the transplant: Rs 33 lakh. “He was looked hot when he was young. He had great hair. He’d be better off sporting some hair at the international red-carpet events that he would be attending for Kites around the world. Plus, he’s been sporting the same look for over two decades now. High time it changed,” says Priya Sharma, 22, a writer.
