Fans are really shocked with his look, which is clearly visible from their strange reactions. While some praised the actor for his dedication some talked about his patience to get such makeup done.
On Rajkumar Rao’s makeup, Dinesh Vijan said, “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 unrecognizable excited him as an actor.”
To make his character look real, Rajkumar Rao also got real tattoos on his body. It used to take 6 hours to complete the makeup for which director Dinesh Vijan arranged a team of makeup artists from LA. He also brought tremendous changes in his body posture and voice to look like an old man.
While talking about his look, Rajkumar said, “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.”
The movie will release on 9 June 2017.
