Aamir KhandAamir Khan’s finally done it! After weeks of speculation about will he, won’t he, and when, Aamir has at last gone for the shaven look everyone’s been talking about. And the actor let us have the first dekho at the new look that he’ll sport in Ghajini.

Aamir overcame his initial nervous moments as hairstylist Avan Contractor set to work on him at his Pali Hill residence in the presence of his wife Kiran Rao, close friends including lyricist and an ad filmmaker Prasoon Joshi, photographer Avinash Gowarikar, designer Arjun Bhasin and director A R Murugadoss. A source revealed, “Kiran and Prasoon constantly joked about Aamir going taklu. That made Aamir all the more nervous. So, he requested Avan to go real slow and chop his hair inch by inch and finally create a scar with the razor. The entire process started at around 11 and took almost one-and a half hour.”

Looking a far cry from his long-haired Mangal Pandey avatar, the actor was quite happy with the end result. “In fact, Kiran remarked that he looked quite dashing,” the source said. Aamir said, “Ghajini is an action thriller and this look is an important dimension to the character I’m playing. I’m very happy with the way it has turned out.” He was so happy with his cut that they had an impromptu dinner party to celebrate the new look. Known to be a thorough professional, Aamir along with the director and Avan spent weeks trying to work out this look.
