Ranchi, Feb 18 (ANI) Ranchi hairdressers are in for some royal treatment as they will get to see 'Billu', the latest Shah Rukh Khan-starrer, free of cost on Thursday.

The Sujata Cinema Hall, a miniplex has offered a free show of 'Billu', which revolves around the life of a barber.

"We have got in touch with the Barbers Association of the region and other reputed hair saloons. All of them shall be able to watch the movie free of cost," said Chandra Mohan Jha, manager of the cinema hall.

Although barbers say they are excited about watching the movie, it is the glitter around the character of Shahrukh Khan, who plays the role of a Bollywood star in the film, that is attracting them more than that of Irfan Khan who is the barber.

"The movie revolves around the life of a man who lived his entire life as a barber and didn't go beyond that. We want to look beyond the scissors and want to progress," said Phenku Thakur, a barber.

'Billu' is the story of a village hairdresser who is a childhood friend of a Bollywood actor played by Shah Rukh Khan.

The film ran into controversy when hairdressers objected to the use of word 'barber' in the title, which they said is derogatory forcing the filmmakers to drop the word from the title. (ANI)
