BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Dhamaal actor Riteish Deshmukh is turning heads wherever he is appearing. This is because he has gone for a rather eye-catching makeover.
He now dons a platinum blonde crew cut rather than the sober, black hair that was the norm. Taking to Instagram, he shared a picture of himself in the new look, he captioned it, “Andar Ka Baghi.” (The tiger inside)

His peers seem to be rather taken by his makeover. Karan Johar commented, “Wow! Full transformation” and Abhishek Bachchan sent a few fire emoticons.
His fans, however, seem to have taken this in a mixed manner. While some were dismayed, commenting, “Bhai Yeh Kya hai” (Bro, what is this?) and “What the f**k” while another said, “Wowww nice look.. different”.
Riteish was compared to a ‘sasta’ (cheap) DJ Snake and former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, both of whom sport silver hair. However, the icing on the cake came when a netizen described him as Maharashtra’s Chris Brown (American rapper).
His upcoming films include David Dhawan’s Coolie No.1 and Ahmed Khan’s Baaghi 3. Currently, he is promoting the film along with co-actors Shraddha Kapoor and Tiger Shroff while sporting this look.
