Actor Nasser who remains one of the busiest actors doing character roles for decades now never hesitates to go the extra mile to suit the character he plays. In his upcoming film Saivam directed by A.L.Vijay, the veteran actor plays a central character of a commanding grandfather in the film. The actor despite acting in six films at the same time has tonsured his head to fit in to the character as he has to appear half bald in the film. Interestingly the film's makeup artiste Pattinam Rasheed has created a wig that exactly resembled the real hairstyle of Nasser and the actor could act in other films with the help of the wig.
Speaking about this to a leading national newspaper, directoe Vijay has said that usually they would use prosthetics and makeup for showing the actors in bald look. However the Thandavam director wanted Nasser's looks to appear as real and hence he wished the actor tonsures his head. The director had conveyed his wish to Kameela Nasser (wife of Nasser) and the three discussed about it. Nasser who liked the idea was hesitant since his other projects may get affected. The strict professional in Nasser got convinced only after Pattinam Rasheed created a wig that was the exact replica of Nasser's hair structure.
The director also revealed that Nasser shot for 25 days for the film and he had to tonsure his head every day.
