Hair or no hair, there are some who make everything a style statement. So now that Hollywood Hunk Hugh Jackson has gone bald for his new role as Blackbeard in Pan, we take a look at some stars closer home that make a bald statement!

1. Persis Khambatta

Former Miss India, Persis Khambatta made an international mark with her role in Star Trek: The Motion Picture where she donned a bald head with complete ease. One of the first few actresses to get noticed in the west, she was always ahead of her time and is still a role model for many!

2. Shahid Kapur

Though the complete bald look is still under wraps, the ‘near’ bald Shahid Kapur couldn’t look better! His hair styles have always been definitive of the roles he’s played in the past, we hope no hair will mean more luck for him with his soon to be released Haider.

3. Amrish Puri

If you were a cinema buff in the 90’s ‘Mogambo Khush Hua’ will be one dialogue that will be etched in your memory, and if you were a kid back then there’s a pretty good  chance his tattooed bald head gave you nightmares. This portrayal by Amrish Puri has gone down in history in the best villainous roles!

4. Sanjay Dutt

If Mogambo wasn’t scary enough, Sanjay Dutt‘s portrayal of Kancha Cheena in the remake of Agneepath gave everyone the chills. Sporting a bald head, all you could see were the piercing eyes and that snide grin. Another bald (we mean bold) role!

5. Shiamak Davar’s Selcouth

Shiamak is known to innovate with each dance show he does. But his latest dance production is rare, unusual and wondrous much like the name- Selcouth. While one bald dancer begins the show in his quintessential Shiamak Style contemporary, you’ll soon be amazed by over fifty bald headed dancers turning, lifting, moving and creating sculptures that make bald seem beautiful.

6. Shabana Azmi

She goes to the skin of every role she does and for this one she went on the reveal the ‘skin’ on her skull! For the controversial film ‘WaterShabana Azmi along with the dusky beauty Nandita Das sported bald heads and showed everyone the beauty can’t be judged by the hair on your head. Who run the world? Girls!

7. Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan proved why he is the greatest legend ever in Indian Cinema as he portrayed the role of a person suffering from Progeria. Isn’t his character the cutest baldie Bollywood has ever seen? :)

8. Rakesh Roshan

You’d often wonder was there ever any hair there, until you take a look at Rakesh Roshan’s old photos. His son is a Greek God (you can say that again!) and if genes have their way, will we see a bald Hrithik in the near future?!

9. Arjun Rampal

If you did take your eyes of his body and shut your ears to his deep, manly voice would you have noticed this model turned actor didn’t have much hair on his head in Ra.One! But when someone is as hot as Arjun Rampal, hair or no hair, does it really matter?!
