MUMBAI: Seen in historical and mythological shows such as Mahakali, Porus, Suryaputra Karn and daily soaps such as Balika Vadhu, actor Nimai Bali is currently seen in the historical drama Chandragupta Maurya on Sony TV as Amatya Rakshas.
Nimai was required to shave his head for the character and much to our surprise; we found a lot of people go bald following the actor’s footsteps. In fact, since he is shooting for Radha Krishna too along with Chandragupta Maurya, he has a few people from that show as well who have gone bald!
Nimai laughed, “Well, it was not out of force, but with a lot of love that people from the unit have gone bald. Almost 60-65 people have gone bald and we are still counting. It takes a lot of gut and courage to go bald and it is also a good thing for good hair growth so why not! Almost all of the sound and technician team has gone bald on the request of Nimai.”
