"Got a hair cut done for #Bose. We'll soon put out the first look as Bose. Until then, these r the post hair cut pictures.Thank U @AalimHakim," the actor wrote on his Twitter handle.

Rajkumar will also be putting on 10 KG's to look more like the character. A glimpse of his first-look from the series is intriguing, to say the least.

There's no denying the fact that Rao is one of the most underrated actors of the generation and that the industry is in dearth of artists who are willing to give-in to the depth of the characters to such extents, it would be great to see him getting some major roles utilizing his potential to the max.

Good luck with 'Bose', Rao! We'll be looking forward to this like most of your past endeavours.
