Akshay Kumar denies his Bala look is inspired by Ranveer Singh’s Bajirao Mastani. The actor is playing a double role in the Diwali release.

Actor Akshay Kumar, who plays a 14th century bald king in one portion of his upcoming comedy film Housefull 4, has finally opened up on comparisons being made with Ranveer Singh’s Bajirao in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani.

Ranveer’s character in Bajirao Mastani was not exactly bald but had a clean shaven head, with a shikha -- in tandem with the traditional Hindu culture. Speaking at a media interaction while promoting Housefull 4, Akshay said, “I am not trying to ape anybody. Basically, when the character Bala was born, he had long hair. That’s when his dad kept his name as Rajkumar Bala. After 2 years, he had Shahi Mundan, and after that, there was no hair growth.”
