The actor will reprise his 'Satya' bearded look as a Naxalite in Prakash Jha's 'Chakravyuh'

Manoj Bajpai appears to be all set to reprise his Satya look. The actor will be sporting a beard and will also have a rather tanned appearance in his next, co-starring Arjun Rampal and Abhay Deol.

In fact, to look the part of a Naxalite in this Prakash Jha film, Bajpai even had to lose five kilos. Our sources reveal that Manoj decided to take up this look as, “most of the Naxalites are always on the move and in the sun”.

Incidentally, this is not the first time that Manoj has worked on his look. Even in Anurag Kashyap’s two-part film that recently premiered at Cannes, Manoj sported a near-bald look as part of his character as a goon.

Five-hour plan
Our sources add that the location for the film, deep inside the forested areas of Pachmarhi in Madhya Pradesh, requires the cast and crew to travel five hours one way from where they are currently put up.
