Reluctant to shave his head off for a role of a stylised, crafty evil guy, the actor had to pass on an opportunity to act in Prabhu Deva’s upcoming film, starring Ajay Devgn.
Insiders say the director and actor both wanted Anna to act in the film. But citing his other film commitments, Suniel had to bow out of the project.
Says a source, “Suniel didn’t want to use prosthetics either. He wanted to look as authentic as possible.”
Says Shetty, “I would have loved to be a part of the film but due to my other commitments I cannot go bald. I would love to work with Prabhu Deva in future. I regret missing the opportunity.”
The director remained unavailable for comment.
