What makes me ask the aforementioned, you may ask? Well, the reason is simple. You all, okay okay, most of you’ll may have loved the trailer of Raabta, right ? People couldn’t stop going gaga over Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon’s unrecognizable look from the ancient era and their electric chemistry.
However, there’s another surprise package of the film and he’s nobody else but the current sensation, Rajkummar Rao. He recently tweeted a picture of his look from the film and we were left open-mouthed. Donning the look of a 324-year old, his face is buried under heavy make-up and prosthetics. Once again displaying the knack for getting into the skin of the character, Rao could be the scene-stealer in Raabta, despite being only for a considerable screen time.
Have a look at his look here-
He also portrayed the role of a Transgender in the Bengali film, Ami Sairabanu. Have a look again-
Ask him about his reason to do Raabta and the actor says-
“I DID THIS FRIENDLY APPEARANCE FOR DINOO (VIJAN) AND HOMI. IT WAS TOO MUCH FUN. DINOO GAVE ME A LOT OF FREEDOM AS AN ACTOR. THE PROSTHETIC MAKE-UP WOULD TAKE HOURS TO PUT ON AND TAKE OFF. I SWEAT PROFUSELY UNDER A THICK LAYER OF MAKE-UP. IT NEEDED QUITE A BIT OF PATIENCE.
Hats off, Mr. Rao, you just quadrupled our excitement to watch the film. Looking forward be more such magical transformations from you.
