Allegedly inspired by Shahid Kapoor's crew cut in 'Haider', Vivek Oberoi is said to follow suit for his upcoming film 'Bank Chor'
After Shahid Kapoor chopped off his hair and grew a beard for Vishal Bhardwaj's film, Haider, looks like it is Vivek Oberoi's turn to sport a beard and a crew cut.
The actor is said to have a similar look in his film, Bank Chor. A source says, "Vivek will begin shooting for his first project with Yash Raj Films next month and he has started preparing for the role. Last week, he went to YRF studio for a look test and he has now chopped off his long hair.
He will play a Central Board of Investigation (CBI) officer in the film and for this role, he will sport a crew cut. He will also grow a moustache and a long beard. It will be one of his looks in the film."
The actor has apparently been asked to stay away from social events in a bid to keep his look from getting revealed. A unit member says, "The film's production team is known for its strict rules.
They have asked everyone involved with the project to not say anything about this film, including about Vivek's role. Vivek is taking care to ensure that he doesn't attend too many public events till he starts shooting for the film. If need arises, he will wear a bandana and step out."
Vivek remained unavailable for comment.
