Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and other casts have left no stone unturned to prove their dedication towards the upcoming project Bharat. The film will see both Salman and Katrina chronicling several chapters in life via a timeline which ranges across 1947 to 2010. Yes, you read it right.
Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film will see Salman depicting a middle-aged man who narrates his journey with the nation. In the film, Katrina plays Kumud and enters Salman’s life in the third phase but will be seen ageing well with him. While Salman's middle-aged man look has been revealed, Katrina's look is yet to be revealed.
Now, it was recently revealed that Salman Khan devoted 2.5 hours before the shoot to get into his salt and pepper look for Bharat. Likewise, Katrina also devoted as many as 2 hours to get her middle-aged look right. Don’t you believe this?
According to a report published in an entertainment portal, Katrina with the help of prosthetics, took as many as two hours and a lot of experimentation to ensure she gets the look right. The entertainment portal quoted Rebecca Butterworth saying that Katrina has as many as five different looks in the movie and the team at Millennium FX worked on two of her looks which involved use of prosthetics. “Both the times her character is aged around 55 and 65 respectively,” she added.
On being asked was it difficult to pull off the look, Rebecca said, "It certainly was! Katrina is so very beautiful and her skin is flawless, it’s very hard to hide prosthetic pieces, especially on the big screen. We also had to balance how Katrina’s character would age against how Salman Khan Sir would age so that they would match up."
"We didn’t want to hide Katrina behind really big prosthetic pieces as we knew we would be filming outdoors in the heat and Katrina didn’t want a barrier between her and her audience, so it’s a challenge to make a face appear older when you can’t use full coverage prosthetics pieces," she added.
It is to be noted that Rebecca Butterworth is Katrina’s makeup artist for the film Bharat. The film releases on June 5, 2019.
