Agneepath is a remake of the 1990 Hindi film starring Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay is playing bald villain Kancha Cheena with bulky physique and tattoos on arms. “I am playing the role of Kancha, a baddie, which the film industry will see for the first time. The look in Agneepath will show me in a never-seen-before avatar," Dutt told PTI.
On his twitter, producer Karan Johar unveiled Sanjay Dutt's look in Agneepath on his 52nd birthday. “I had put on this prosthetic make-up for my character in the film, but it used to melt within an hour due to the heat. The temperature was around 48 degrees. We had called this make-up artist from abroad. I used to go mad in that hot temperature. So I thought I better shave off my hair," Dutt told PTI.
However, the Agneepath remake is set to hit theatres in January. The actor further said, “Since I had a couple of other films lined up for release after Agneepath, I could not have shaved off my hair. I had told Karan that I will not shave off hair. But due to the intensity of the heat and the make-up getting melted, I had to do that."
