I was feeling so confident because of my new haircut, and then, I saw Priyadarshan looking at me and swearing under his breath.”

The Bhool Bhulaiyaa star added how the director did not like his hair and asked his assistants to put a bowl on his head and cut his locks. Rajpal Yadav said, “He was gesturing towards me and complaining about something to his assistants. He called me over, and told the assistants to take me away. I swear to you, they put a ‘katora (bowl)’ on my head and cut all my hair off.” However, Aalim Hakim refused to take the payment as the actor revealed, “If you watch Chup Chup Ke now, you’ll see. Aalim didn’t take money for that haircut, I kept insisting, because the production would’ve paid for it, but he didn’t. He was shocked to see me when I returned to Mumbai.”
