Inspired by Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson’s legendary character of Joker in the 1989 movie Batman, Sanjay Dutt decided to go bald for Agneepath. His Kancha avatar has impressed the producers and his fans but Sanju Baba’s toddlers refused to recognise
If you look closely at the menacing Kancha of Agneepath, you might realise what inspired Sanjay Dutt to play the larger-than-life villain. It was Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of Joker in the 1989 film, Batman that helped him don the garb of the dangerous villain in the film. Dutt chose to go bald for the role as he had Nicholson’s look in mind. Sanju has clearly added the much-needed edge to the character by going bald and the audience loves it. But losing his hair for the role came with a heavy price for the 52 year old actor. When he returned from the sets of Agneepath, his change of appearance from a full crown head to complete shaven look didn’t go down well with his twin kids- Iqara and Shahraan. In fact, they failed to recognise him. It’s only after hearing his voice that the children realise that it was indeed their father! Let’s hope Sanjay Dutt’s sacrifice pays off and Agneepath gets a good response at BO.
