Mumbai: Ever since the makers of ‘Go Goa Gone’ launched the first look of the film, Saif Ali Khan’s blonde look has raised many eyebrows. The Nawab, who will be seen playing a ‘Russian’ mafia lord - Boris - the zombie hunter in Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K’s film has worked hard to get the perfect on-screen look.
The actor, who is known for not experimenting with his hairstyle, has gone for an all- blonde avatar and an inked bod. It has been revealed that his look for the zombie film was decided after much deliberation.
A source close to producers said, “As Saif is playing a Russian mafia lord in the film, his look was very important. A lot of looks were tried. Different hairstyles with different hair colours were tested before he and directors decided to go for the blonde backcombed mafia look. Apart from beefing up for the role, he was required to learn a new language and get his body tattooed.”
The source further added, “Saif is a thorough professional and he didn’t let his apprehensions come in the way. Off-screen Saif doesn`t experiment much with his hair-style. So even for this change he put his apprehensions aside and went ahead with his new look and the director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK`s conviction.”
Saif and Dinesh Vijan are producing this film under their banner Illuminati Films along with Sunil Lulla of Eros International. The film also stars Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwary and Puja Gupta in key roles. The zombie comedy is ready for release on May 10 this year.
