Veteran actress Shabana Azmi shaved her hair for a role in the film Water. However, the film attracted controversies and Shabana choose to opt out of the film. "I was bald at Farhan's wedding and still sported a patta of sindoor, chunky earrings and big bangles. I'm sure everyone thought I was crazy but the kids were loving it. You must surprise people every once in a while and I do it in my own style" she was quoted saying.
