The recent new look of Akshay Kumar may have surprised many but some may have thought he’s changed his look for a film. However, the real reason is very different.

The actor, whose next film ‘PadMan’ is soon to release, spoke about this decision recently while on the promotional spree. A source told India Today, “Akshay had bonded hair before. He never went for a surgery. Unfortunately, the hair that the artificial hair bonded with also started thinning, prompting the doctor to tell him that his hair follicles are too weak to hold bonded hair”.

Kumar will be seen sharing the screen with Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor in the R Balki directorial which releases on 25th January.
