The makers of Azhar have revealed Kunaal Roy Kapur’s incredible look from the film where he portrays the dramatised role of Azhar’s real life lawyer friend Reddy.
Sporting a bald patch along with dentures to give his face an aged look, well aided by prosthetics, Kunaal is unrecognizable as Reddy and seems to have gone extra mile for his role.
His character is based on the lawyer and a friend of Azharuddin who had defended the cricketer in the match-fixing scandal.
Talking about his look in the film, Kunaal said, “It took about two hours to get the look because of the prosthetics. I had a latex bald piece stuck to my forehead and then there was a wig that went on top of it. I was given a denture-like thing to make my face look fuller. By the end of the look test, I couldn’t recognize myself. I was shocked.”
Fans who had been waiting patiently for the looks of all the inspired characters of the movie, have now got a reason to celebrate! With Kunaal’s look out, the team of Azhar is now gearing up for the big release.
Though Azhar is not a biopic, it is based on some well-known incidents and facts of the former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin’s life. The film is directed by Tony D’Souza and stars Emraan Hashmi, Prachi Desai, Nargis Fakhri and Lara Dutta.
Azhar is slated to release on May 13th, 2016.
