Imran Khan will adopt two new looks in a movie for the first time in Karan Johar’s Dharma Production flick Short Term Shaadi. He will sports a formal look in the first half of the film while the look in the second half is funky
A source said, “Imran plays a rigid, conservative and fussy architect in the film who falls in love with Kareena Kapoor, a liaison which changes him completely.
Kareena plays a hairstylist who teaches him about life and love. The film has been shot in Las Vegas and India and will be directed by Shakun Batra.”
The source revealed, “In the first half, Imran has slightly longer, gelled back hair. It’s a formal classic hairstyle with longer sideburns and side parting something Imran has not done before.
In the second half, Imran goes for a funkier and cooler look similar to I Hate Luv Storys.”
According to sources, Kareena had to learn some hairstyling for her role in the film so that the on-screen sequences did not look fake and Imran would always sportingly agree to whatever she wanted to experiment on him.
“She learned some hairstyling from her stylist (Pompy),” informs Imran.
While, in the film, Kareena styles Imran’s hair, in real life and for all his films, it’s his good friend Ayesha who has done the look.
“Ayesha has been styling my hair ever since my first film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. She has worked on both my looks in Short Term Shaadi too.”
Imran was excited about the looks he is donning for the film.
He said, “The film takes place in a compressed time frame of a little more than a week and deals with how my character changes within that short span of time.”
“In the first half, my character is prim, proper and very fussy about the way his life should be.
I wear starched, neatly ironed outfits and formal three-piece suits with polished shoes. My hair is always neatly combed.
Kareena enters my life and gives me a cool makeover and a different, spicier hairstyle. She comes into my dull and drab life like a breath of fresh air and makes me see things differently,” he elaborated.
