Rajkummar Rao has always surprised us with the kind of world-class performances that only a few can put up on the silver screen. The “Trapped” actor has now pushed all boundaries and his need to be a completely different character altogether has left us astounded once again.
By the way, have you seen the newly released trailer of Raabta?
If no, you must watch it Here. And if yes, you might remember this guy from the end:
That centuries old man right there is none other than Rajkummar Rao, who quite patiently sat through 5-6 hours of prosthetics every day so that he could transform into someone who might probably be a very old and a very evil man.
Director Dinesh Vijan and Rao took about 2 days(and about sixteen look tests) to get the look right. Here’s what he stated “Rajkummar was kind enough to do me a favor. 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,”
Rajkummar Rao opened up about his look stating “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,”
Who’s excited to see Rao in Raabta?
