Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon starrer movie Raabta’s trailer has released few days ago and from the trailer, the story seems to be quite intriguing with lots of passion and love. At the end of the trailer we noticed an old man who looks mysterious.This old man is none other than the National Film Award-winning actor Rajkummar Rao. Yes, he is playing the role of a 324-year-old man in the movie. The Trapped actor has very well got into the skin of this mysterious old man character.
Rajkummar took to Twitter and said that it is all for a guest appearance. He wrote, “And here is my Guest appearance from #Raabta.”
This unique look of Rajkummar was made finalised after 16 look tests. A special team from Los Angeles along with Zuby Johal of Dirty Hands company worked really hard to get the look.
Director Dinesh Vijan said, “Rajkummar was kind enough to do me a favour. It was tedious but, he patiently sat through it everyday. I think, the idea of the prosthetics making him completely unrecognisable excited him as an actor.”
Rajkummar also worked on his body posture and voice modulation. He underwent five to six hours of prosthetic everyday. Styling was also one of the important factors. He wore heavy metal accessories and got tattoos done.
Talking about his different avatar in the movie, Rajkummar said, “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.”
He also said, “The prosthetics used to take almost five to six hours everyday and then I would start sweating inside all that make-up. It needed quite a bit of patience.”
Raabta also stars Jim Sarbh and the movie is all set to release on June 9
