Mumbai: Actor Shahid Kapoor has agreed to go bald for Vishal Bharadwaj`s ‘Haider’. He says the decision was driven by the fact that the look is justified for his role in the movie.

‘Haider’ is said to be the director`s adaptation of William Shakespeare`s `Hamlet`.

"I thought it is justified. When I read the script, I found it very interesting and I have tried to do something shocking whenever I have worked with Vishal. With him I have always tried to do something different," the actor said here at a promotional event of his upcoming release ‘R...Rajkumar’ Friday.

Meanwhile, Shahid also admits that one of the best performances of his career was in Vishal`s film ‘Kaminey’, which released in 2009.

"He is a phenomenal director. He has given me `Kaminey`. It has been the most appreciated role of my life till now. It`s great working with him again. It has been a lot of fun," said Shahid.

‘Haider’ also stars Shraddha Kapoor in the lead.
