We all know National Award winning actor Rajkumar Rao for his great acting capabilities and for his extraordinary talent. The Film and Television Institute of India graduated actor never fails to impress the audience even if it’s just one line scene.
Likewise, the promo of his upcoming film Raabta, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon in lead roles will definitely pull you to theater to watch his character.
Though he is having a guest appearance in the film, but his character of a 324 year old man with wrinkles and tattoos all over, bald head will leave a lasting impression on audience. He took to twitter revealing his look for the movie and we can’t wait to watch him on screen.
Well all this was possible with the help of a team of professionals who came down from Los Angeles and worked with Zuby Johal of Dirty Hands company to get the look for the actor. The directors and the actor himself worked with the team of professionals to finalize the look. 16 look test were done before picking up the final one. Things like voice modulation, body language and posture, everything has been worked upon brilliantly.
“Raj Kumar was kind enough to do me a favour. It was tedious but, he patiently sat through it everyday. I think, the idea of the prosthetics making him completely unrecognizable excited him as an actor,” said Dinesh Vijan, the director of the film in a statement.
Raj Kumar said, “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 prosthetic used to take almost five to six hours everyday and then I would start sweating inside all that make-up. It needed quite a bit of patience,” he added.
