MUMBAI: Blonde, bold and bindaas. This seems to be the mantra for two of B’town’s hottest stars, who have turned ‘golden’ in light of their new film.
Saif Ali Khan and Bipasha Basu are the latest stars to have completely revamped and reinvented their image yet again, adding a tinge of gold to the proceedings.
Saif is keen to reinvent his look, and has promised to bring sexy back and make his female fans weak in the knees. Sporting a golden-bronze tan and a ripped lean look, the recently married Nawab oozes sex appeal in the sequel to his 2008 superhit film, ‘Race’.
Creative producer of ‘Race 2’, Jay Shewakramani couldn’t stop praising the star’s new avatar, and said, “Saif will be sporting a completely new look in Race 2, which is different from anything he has done before. Not only in terms of his physique, but also in styling. He will be seen wearing gold chains and a gold watch and he will sport a deep tan”.
Saif has worked hard on his new physique, and has lost an astonishing 10 kgs to look leaner and fit the part. He also ensured he achieved the right shade of golden-bronze tan by sunbathing endlessly on the beaches in North Cyrus. Jay said, “He usually began his day early, spending an hour on the beach catching sun for the tan. Then he hit the gym for an hour where he did some heavy workouts, before reporting on sets. He would even tan himself in between shoots and during lunch. In addition to all this, he followed a strict diet and ended his day with an hour-long yoga session”.
Even producer Ramesh Taurani couldn’t help but gush about the Chotte Nawab Saif, “Saif is looking his best in the film. He took personal interest in styling his look and shared his inputs, even for his ‘gold’ look. He was extremely professional and took it all very seriously”.
And Bipasha too, is giving Saif stiff competition in the bronzing department! In a cameo appearance for Race 2, it seems like Saif’s dedication and innovation in restyling has affected her too. She has undergone a complete makeover, and has started experimenting with her long, flowing tresses. Her long locks have been coloured blonde, and highlighted with platinum streaks, to give her a new international look.
Says the beautiful lady, post her makeover, “Reinvention is the key to feeling fresh and new forever! Change of hair style plays a big difference to the way you look and feel,” tweeted Bipasha. She has got the new look from celebrity hairstylist Hakim Aalim’s salon. “Thank you Nida from Hakim Aalim’s for my new hair style! Loving my long hair global blonde, platinum highlights and bangs,” she added.
Producers of the action thriller ‘Race 2’ have also recently released the posters of John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Jacqueline Fernandez looking super chic in the film. The film also featuring Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel is scheduled for a January, 2013 release.
