Films are not just about acting, it requires one to get into the skin of the character to achieve the perfect look & feel of it. There are some actors of Bollywood who are known for going out of their way to live their reel characters to the fullest, thereby creating a strong reminisce on the minds of the audience. One such talented actor is Vir Das.
We earlier saw and heard that Vir is donning a real beard and traditional turban in his upcoming film ’31st October’, a biopic. Now we bring you his exceptionally brilliant look of an old man from the film in which the actor is completely unrecognizable.
It’s a coming of age role transforming from a 28 – 65 years old. Vir who plays Davinder Singh in the film, a survivor from the riots of 31st October had to undergo many trial sessions with different make-up artists. Later, there was a team of 3-4 make-up artists hired to turn Vir into an old man for his character in the film. The shoot went on for 10 days and Vir spent 6 hours on make-up, 3 hours to wear it and 3 hours to remove it. To achieve the look the desired look, there were prosthetics used on the actor’s face to turn him into older Davinder Singh. It was a very hectic time for the actor as he had to sit back patiently and wait for the artists use the heavy prosthetic make-up on his face.
However, Vir has totally transformed his look for the film, it is so intense that we can definitely vouch for an outstanding performance by him in the film.
31st October is an edge-of-the-seat thriller based on the aftermath of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s assassination. Written and produced by Harry Sachdeva under the banner Magical Dreams Productions Pvt Ltd, the film also stars Soha Ali Khan opposite Vir Das.
