Shahrukh Khan to go hairy for Farah Khan’s Happy New Year

The superstar will be seen sporting long, shoulder-length hair with a generous beard for his choreographer-turned-filmmaker friend’s next film

He took off his shirt and sported a six-pack abs for Farah Khan’s 2007 film Om Shanti Om. Now, Farah is keen to give Shahrukh Khan a new look again for her upcoming movie Happy New Year. “In Happy New Year, you will see a different SRK. He will have long, almost shoulder-length hair and a healthy beard,” said Farah in an interview. In fact, the project was supposed to kick start this year, but now a little birdie tells us that it will not start before April 2013.

We have already seen King Khan sport a beard in Shimit Amin’s Chak De India!, and more recently in Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan. In Farhan Akhtar’s Don 2 also, Shahrukh had sported a beard with long hair, but those tangled tresses were mere extensions. And Farah has to wait a little longer this time for SRK to grow his hair. “Since he has a clean shaven look in Chennai Express, we have to wait until he wraps up his shoot and grows his hair for my film,” added Farah.

Honestly speaking, we like Shahrukh with his hair short and a generous stubble; long hair with a healthy beard doesn’t sound like an exciting combo. Tell us what do you think, Shahrukh fans?
