Rajkummar Rao unrecognisable in his extreme makeover to match his 324 year old character in ‘Raabta’

Rajkummar Rao is a choosy actor who scrutinises all his scripts well because of which he cant be seen on screen too often.

He experiments with hi characters and makes sure to take up roles that he hasn’t done before. His recent hit with Vikramaditya Motwane’s ‘Trapped’ got the critics and viewers praising him for the best of his ability in delivering a trapped man to complete perfection.

The actor once again proved his perfection in mastering the looks of his character in Dinesh Vijan’s ‘Raabta’ where the actor will be seen essaying the role of a 324-year-old.

Though he appears only for a split second during the trailer, towards the end, he remains completely unrecognisable, and so you are sure to miss him out in the trailer.

The actor shared a picture of himself on Twitter and captioned it as, “And here is my Guest appearance from #Raabta.”

Rajkummar had to undergo five to six hours of prosthetic every day to get moulded into the character. His styling along with voice modulation and body posture had to be accurate.

Talking about the actor’s dedication to a portal, considering it was only for a guest appearance, director 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.”

Rajkummar also shared his experience with a media house saying, “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.” Adding to it, he 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.”

Starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon in the leads, the film is slated to release on 9 June.
