Nikhil Dwivedi has shaved himself bald for Mani Ratnam's
Raavan. The actor was initially hesitant, but director
Mani, being a professional made him go clean.
A source reveals, "Nikhil plays the role of a cop. Ravi Kissen,
who plays Abhishek Bachchan's brother in the movie, is shaving him
for revenge in the film. Nikhil was reluctant and was not willing
to go bald. Mani sir explained him the importance of the scene and
after having a discussion with the director for over an hour the
actor agreed and went thin on top."
The source continues, "After the Ooty shoot minus Govinda, the
crew is currently shooting in Malshej Ghats, on Pune-Nashik
highway. Cast including Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Bachchan, Ravi
Kissen and Nikhil Dwivedi are present. The shoot is happening at a
very difficult location. It is spectacular but it is a one-hour
walk in muck. It is a very tough terrain to shoot."
