It's a battle of the sexes. If Bipasha Basu can wear hair extensions for her role in Dhoom 2 why can't Arjun Rampal sport greasy ones for Rock On!!? The hair extensions were styled by Farhan Akhtar's wife Adhuna. Shefali from her team was constantly on the sets to keep track of the hair.
Arjun, who is currently in Goa shooting for Deepak Tijori's Fox, says, "I had to wear really long hair in Rock On!!. I didn't want to wear uncomfortable wigs, so I wore hair extensions. Originally, I was not supposed to have long hair but when we shot the pictures, everyone loved the long-haired look. I play a Catholic guy called Joe Mascarenhas much like those men in Bandra in the small fishing villages with long ponytails and T-shirts."
In Om Shanti Om, Arjun sported a ponytail, "That was my real hair which I had to colour white when I became an old guy. My hair and look was definitely more difficult and challenging in OSO than Rock On!!. The make-up took four hours, after which they had to colour the hair separately."
Arjun loves long hair, but says maintaining it is difficult. "I can control other things but not my hair. I didn't go out that much because I didn't want my look to be known. I don't like to colour my hair but prefer it natural n real. When I was a model, I sported a crew cut and that was really convenient."
