Mumbai, Feb 19 (IANS) Actor Aftab Shivdasani, who desperately wanted a radical makeover, has almost gone bald for Vikram Bhatt's "Red".

"I was discussing this new look with Vikram when we were doing 'Ankahee'. I was longing to see myself in a new light. I went to hair stylist Aalim Hakim... Vikram has been very supportive and we finally implemented the look in 'Red'. I'm in love with this new look," said Aftab.

He plays Neel Oberoi, a heart patient who falls in love with Anahita, played by Celina Jaitley, reports Bollywood Trade.

"'Red' signifies anger, passion, danger and hence goes with the film. My character Neel is a passionate, intense guy. He is required to be portrayed in that light (referring to his 'bald' look). The look compliments my character in the film. I've never played something like this before. 'Red' was a great opportunity for me as an actor."

The film, releasing March 2, has been described as an erotic thriller -- the Aftab-Celina lip-lock has generated enough hype already.

The actor has interesting line-up of films, including "Life Mein Kabhi Kabhie", "De Taali", and "Speed".
