A popular face and name in the Indian film, television and theatre industry, Krutika Desai Khan is all set to enter COLORS popular show, Uttaran in a completely bold avatar. Entering the show as Ekadish who plays Akash aka Vishnu’s mother, Krutika will be seen sporting a bald look for the show.
She will be the first actress on Indian television to go bald for a role, following the footsteps of other famous Bollywood actresses like Shabana Azmi, Lisa Ray, Nandita Das, Sarika and now recently Tanuja, who have too from time to time shaved their hair off for certain roles. Well recognized for her work in A mouthful of Sky, Kkusum, Buniyaad, Yeh Meri Life Hai, and Anu Ki Ho Gayi Wah Bhai Wah, Krutika is known to never shy away from doing bold roles.
A little nervous and a little excited, Krutika got emotional at the actual moment when her hair was being shaved but was sporting enough and seemed to be excited for this new beginning. Talking about this experience, Krutika said, “I feel good as well as a little embarrassed with my new look. It took a lot of courage to agree to this role and it took me a while to make up my mind to finally decide on taking this up. When I was approached for the role, my daughter was more excited than me and she was the one who motivated me to take on this role.
On a lighter note, Krutika added, “summer is around the corner. Luckily I won’t have to worry about my hair and feeling hot!”
Well, whatever be her reason, hats off to Krutika for making a statement!
