Mumbai, June 26 -- Shahid Kapoor made the most of his new look and used it to go unnoticed in Kashmir. The actor, who is sporting a bald look with a beard for his next, went out shopping in Srinagar without any security.
Sources close to the actor inform us, "Shahid has three looks in the film, one with his regular hairdo, the second with a crew-cut and another with his head completely shaved, which was a requirement only for a day. It was after shaving his head that he took to the roads without any security. In fact, the guards who were provided by the officials remarked that he looked like a Kashmiri in that look."
A spokesperson from the production house, too, confirmed this news, saying, "As no one had seen him like that before, there was no chance of him being recognised."
The actor took the opportunity to buy pashmina shawls, a trademark of Kashmir, for the women in his family. The source adds, "He picked up gifts for his family from one of the stores in the vicinity where he was staying." Shahid's mother, Neelima Azim, confirmed the news. "He keeps getting me gifts and this time he got me a shawl from Kashmir, which I love," she says.
A week after coming back from Srinagar, the actor even managed to fly to Goa from Mumbai airport incognito.
