New Delhi, Friday 21: A picture of 324-year-old man went viral on the Internet and you might have found the secret behind it.
When National Award winner Rajkummar Rao shared a picture of his guest appearance from 'Raabta', it became the most discussed topic of the movie.
Nothing is impossible in the world of prosthetics as we can see in this picture. But this look wasn't achieved easily.
It took 16 look tests and a couple of days for director Dinesh Vijan, Rajkummar and the team to get the final look. A special team from Los Angeles got on board and worked with Zuby Johal of Dirty Hands company to etch the look for the actor.
"Rajkummar was kind enough to do me a favour. It was tedious but, he patiently sat through it every day. I think, the idea of the prosthetics making him completely unrecognisable excited him as an actor," said Vijan in a statement.
And it seems their purpose is served. Because Rajkummar is actually not recognisable in the look. Even after the revelation, we can't believe these are the faces of the same actor.
Not only his face, but his body posture and voice modulation were changed for this guest appearance. He had to wear accessories and also have tattoos.
Only a dedicated actor like Yadav had the patience to undergo five to six hours of prosthetic every day to play a cameo.
Talking about his friendly appearance in the film, Rajkummar was quoted by ZoomTV: "It was so much fun as an actor. Dinoo (Dinesh) has a very clear vision as a director and he gave me a lot of freedom as an actor to explore."
"The prosthetics used to take almost five to six hours every day and then I would start sweating inside all that make-up. It needed quite a bit of patience," he added.
Raabta starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon will be releasing on June 9.
