The first glimpse we get of Shahid as we watch the trailer is his buzz cut with a decently cut beard and in the other he is sporting the long hair look. The movie has been in news for Shhid new look o for Irrfan Khans controversial statements. Irrfan Khan has made it very clear to director Vishal Bhardwaj that his name, face and presence must not be used to promote Haider. We will therefore not get to see Irrfan in any publicity of the film. Says a friend of the actor, “It’s a policy decision. Irrfan will do guest appearances only on condition that his name and face are not used for any publicity. Vishal respects Irrfan’s sentiments and has decided that his name will be kept completely out of the publicity.”Irrfan is especially particular on the issue as he had an unpleasant experience with the makers of the Himesh Reshammiya starrer Xpose recently. Says Irrfan’s friend, “He did a guest appearance in Xpose. The makers had promised to keep his name out of the publicity but they still went on to use his name and face for publicity. Irrfan was shocked to see that he was featured prominently in the posters and trailers.” Says Irrfan, “I have a guest appearance in Haider Movie. I did it because I love Vishal’s work. And I wanted to be part of another Shakespearean adaptation by Vishal after Maqbool.”Irrfan left cheated once has wants to make sure that history dosnt repeate itself.
