Abhishek Chaubey's "Udta Punjab", starring Shahid Kapoor, has been the talk of the town ever since the actor was roped in.

While Shahid copped a bald look for his highly acclaimed "Haider", in the Abhishek directorial, the actor will be seen sporting long locks. Although, the hunk tried his best to keep his looks under wraps, recently some pictures from the sets made their way to the internet. 

Dressed in unbuttoned multi-coloured shirt with black pants, the "Haider" star arrived on the sets with long locks of hair grazing his shoulders.

The film has Alia Bhatt in female lead. She will be seen essaying the role of a hockey player. The "Highway" actress has been working hard to pull it off as a professional player.

This is the second time Alia is teaming up with Shahid after "Shandaar".

Interestingly, the film also has Shahid's ex-beau Kareena Kapoor Khan. However, some reports suggested that the ex-lovers, who last starred in the blockbuster "Jab We Met", will not share screen space in the film.

"Udta Punjab" will revolve around the increasing problem of drug abuse in Punjab. The entire star cast is expected to play important roles in dealing with the issue of drug abuse in the state.

Earlier, Shahid had revealed that his role in the film is the most challenging one in his entire acting career.
