"For a few important scenes in the film, Pawan had grown his beard and hair. The team will first shoot these scenes and once it's completed, he will get rid of the look. He will also be sporting a clean-shaven look for the rest of the film," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
There were rumours that the actor had grown his hair and beard for a project with AR Murugadoss. But the source said: "He's not doing any other film as of now. He won't sign any other project until he completes Gabbar Singh 2."
The first part of Gabbar Singh 2 will be shot near a place in Pune, where art director Anand Sai has constructed a village set.
To be directed by KS Ravindra, the film will feature Anisha Ambrose as the female lead.
