Anil Kapoor has done the unthinkable. He has shaved off his chest and got tattoos done all over his body for his role in upcoming film Tashan.

"I've never done that before," he chuckles. "But re-invention and makeovers have been part of my acting repertoire long before they became fashionable. For Badhai Ho Badhai I had put on oodles of weight and for Musafir I lost a lot of weight. My role in the new Yashraj film Tashan required me to get rid of the hair on my chest.

"It was for the tattoos that I had to get done for my character. I've got them done on my back, chest ... you name it."

The actor has certainly gone all-out for this part. "Yup. I still remember my co-star Dimple Kapadia had called me a barber's delight after we shot a love-scene in Janbaaz. Wonder what she would have to say about the way I am now."<b1>

And Anil says he will continue experimenting with his looks for his roles. "For every part that I play I want to create a new look for my character."

Other actors who have worked extra hard for a new look in their films include Saif Ali Khan, who shaved his head and got yellow teeth for Omkara, and Abhishek Bachchan, who put on lots of weight for his character in Mani Ratnam's Guru.
