Anil Kapoor has done the unthinkable. He has shaved off his chest and got tattoos done all over his body for his role in the upcoming 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. My role in 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.” — HNS
