Rajpal Yadav’s impeccable comic timing has undeniably been a major draw for audiences, making his films a must-watch. The actor consistently succeeds in tickling the audience’s funny bone, and over the course of his career, several of his roles have become memorable for his fans. One of his iconic portrayals is Bandya in the 2006 comedy ‘Chup Chup Ke,’ directed by Priyadarshan. However, bringing this character to life was no easy feat, as it required the actor to part ways with a haircut worth Rs 26,000 and embrace a unique ‘Katora cut.’

Rajpal Yadav’s portrayal of Bandya from ‘Chup Chup Ke’ has become omnipresent as you can see him not only in the film but also in GIFs, memes, and stickers. His impeccable acting and comedic timing in the movie, coupled with his humorous banter with Shahid Kapoor‘s Jeetu, have left an indelible mark. The film not only brought joy to millions but also served as a confirmation for Yadav that he had established himself in the industry. This was evident when he received a phone call from Priyadarshan, asking him to commit to a 40-day shoot.

Once the ‘Hungama’ actor revealed how he went to celebrity hairdresser Aalim Hakim to get a fresh cut for the movie. The cut cost him a whopping Rs 26,000 and gave him the confidence he needed to work with Priyadarshan, who did not like it. He said, “I landed in Goa, went to the set. 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 actor shared an amusing incident about the director’s dissatisfaction with his hair. Rajpal Yadav recounted, “He (the director) was expressing his displeasure to his assistants about something related to my hair. He then called me over, and instructed the assistants to take me away. I swear, they placed a ‘katora (bowl)’ on my head and sheared off all my hair.” Despite the unique haircut, hairstylist Aalim Hakim declined payment, as Rajpal Yadav revealed, ” Aalim didn’t accept money for that haircut. I insisted because the production would’ve covered it, but he refused. He was astonished when he saw me back in Mumbai.”
