But for Raavan, Abhishek Bachchan has allowed Mani Ratnam to cut his long hair in order to fulfill his promise made to renowned film maker Mani Ratnam that he would allow him to cut his hair.
Right from the time when he sported long hair and made the hair band his individual style statement, he has always experimented with great elan when it comes to hair styling, sources close to the actor said.
However, what is not known to the world is the fact that during the shooting of Yuva bollywood film it was none other than Mani Ratnam himself who wanted Abhishek Bachchan to don a different hair. Given Abhisheks fetish for his hair, the actor decided against the directors suggestion, but only with a promise in store.
Abhishek had promised Mani Ratnam that “one day he would allow him to cut his hair and he will only do it for Mani.” It was finally during the shooting of the film Raavan when Mani Ratnam fulfilled his long standing desire to chop off Abhisheks hair.
“On the first day of the shoot in Kerala, Mani Ratnam himself gave a hair cut to Abhishek Bachchan. Stylist Hakim Aalims expert hands stepped in to give the finishing touches later,” sources said.
