MUMBAI, JULY 04 (INDIATIMES MOVIES) As if to go with his new attitude towards life and the happening films he has been signing, Vivek Oberoi will now sport a brand new look too. "After keeping his hair shoulder-length long for the role of a Turkish commando in his forthcoming film ‘Mission Istaanbul’, Bollywood’s famous hairstylist Dilshad Pastakia has given Vivek a completely refreshing look last week," reveals the actor’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar.
VO has had his hair cut short for his new Tips movie, an action-thriller to be produced by Kumar Taurani and directed by the popular video director Kookie V. Gulati.
So how short has he cut his hair? Is it the earlier ‘Company’ look or the ‘Saathiya’ look that he’s gone back to? "That’s a secret for two weeks," quips the publicist. Though he leaks out that the strategy is to pleasantly surprise everyone with the new look at the ‘Mission Istaanbul’ premiere next fortnight.
So would the actor go into hiding till then? "Yes, from the last few days, Vivek has almost gone underground. It’s out with old and in with the new for the actor. He will not reveal his new look till the premiere. And if he has to meet people, he’ll be sporting a cap till then," adds Bhagwagar.
So be prepared for VO in a whole new smashing avatar!
