The refreshing trailer of the upcoming comic caper – Bala, featuring the powerhouse of talent Ayushmann Khurrana has already got the movie buffs excited and Ayushmann’s realistic look has definitely become the talk of the town. Slated to release on November 7, the film also stars Bhumi Pednekar & Yami Gautam in the pivotal roles.
And the man responsible for the look is none other than the film’s director – Amar Kaushik and his extraordinary skill to cautiously click pictures of random people from the road. So, hear this bit – As Bala, presented by Jio Studios & Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films, deals with the topic of premature balding in men and Ayushmann Khurrana’s character is seen going through various stages of balding in the film, Amar wanted to ensure that at no point does his look come across as fake. And for this, the dedicated director would actually hit the streets and covertly click pictures of people from behind and then share it with the hair stylist of the film.
Commenting about it, Amar said, “When a person unfortunately starts losing hair, there is a certain pattern to it. I didn’t want Ayushmann’s character to be gimmicky; the film had to be as authentic as possible. And I wanted to ensure that we don’t goof up the look. So every time I saw someone on the road with this condition, I would sneakily try and click their pictures from behind and share it with the stylist and saying this is how I want the look to be.” Impressive, isn’t it?
