On wearing turban the actor proudly revealed, “I have been shooting for ‘Kesari’ since the last one and a half months, and every time that I wear the Taaj (turban) on my head, I am filled with pride“. “The turban [I wore] was so heavy. They used to wear turbans weighing one-and-a-half kgs in those days and carry swords of 30 kgs. Just imagine how they must have fought the battles. They consumed food prepared in pure ghee not steroids.
