Shilpa Shetty shaves off her hair

Bollywood long legged actress Shilpa Shetty is all set to accept challenge. She will go Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das's way by shaving off her hair. Shilpa's beauty is multiplied by her long and curly hair but soon she will get rid of that beautiful hair for the sake of a challenging role and big bucks. The actress will go bald for her next film to be directed by Malayalam director, R Sarath. The film titled The Desire.

When we enquired Shilpa about her baldness, she laughed and said, "I can't reveal everything about my role. If I tell you everything now why would you watch the film? But yes, this is by far the most challenging role of my career. It takes me through ten turbulent years of my character's life. It's a very intense love story between me and my Chinese co-star, Xia Yu."

Shilpa has not yet met Xia Yu, "Our shooting starts this week in Kerala. Then we will shoot in Kuala Lampur."What attracts Shilpa more about the role is that she will get to learn Odissi dance. "I have been a Bharatnatyam dancer all my life. In THE DESIRE I play an Odissi dancer, and I had to unlearn everything I knew about the classical dance and start from scratch. It has been quite a daunting experience", quips Shilpa.
