MUMBAI: Sudhir Mishra is currently on an all-time high. Ever since the 53-year old filmmaker discovered Hot Yoga he has begun to feel the change within and outside him.
The director’s trademark all-grey hair could soon be a thing of the past. Sudhir’s chalk-coloured hair has begun go back to black again.
Says Sudhir, “I wouldn’t have noticed it if my friends hadn’t pointed it out. My hair has gone white for years. But now I see it’s going back to being black. Initially I didn’t believe it. But yes, slowly my hair’s greying process is being reversed.”
Sudhir recommends Hot Yoga as the most effective form of exercise. “Ever since I began to practice it I feel a change in me. The hair is just the most noticeable part of it.”
Interestingly Sudhir’s wildly-flowing whitened mane has been an integral part of his personality for years now. He says he can’t imagine looking any other way.
“The weirdest thing is, some of my friends think I’ve finally started dying my hair because it’s suddenly looking blacker than before. I tell them I’ve started applying hair dye selectively.”
Sudhir Mishra is part of the small circle of showbiz folks who refuse to dye their prematurely grey hair. Vikram Bhatt and Sriram Raghavan too refuse to dye their hair although it’s gone grey from the time they barely entered their 40s.
Among the actresses Waheeda Rehman and Jaya Bachchan refuse to color their hair, arguing when you dye your hair you are fooling no one except yourself.
Maybe they should try Hot Yoga.
